Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Hickey and Boggs" is not involved in a story or with characters really worthy of a full theatrical treatment."

"Walter Hill wrote this tough, uncompromising story of two down-on-their-luck private eyes. Marks a career high for both stars of TV's I Spy. Another of those overlooked 1970s gems that's ripe for rediscovery."

"Not a pretty story, but it should bring a smile to Peckinpah."

"This was Culp's only venture into movie directing, and he handles the assignment well, and he and Cosby are both credible in their roles."
