Reviews:
"...Stylish, lighter-than-air....Beautifully played by [Matthau and Jackson]..." - 09/26/1980 New York Times, p.C6


"Director Ronald Neame's aim with HOPSCOTCH was to create a spy movie where no-one was so much as scratched, which he achieved by turning Brian Garfield's earnest novel into a light comedy." - 06/01/2008 Empire, p.155


"With its cosy confrontations and bureaucratic bunglers, it's the caper mirror-image of the 1970s conspiracy thriller..." - 07/01/2008 Sight and Sound, p.86
