    Lightweight, gentle and likable caper thriller.

    A return to the tongue-and-cheek, pre-war Hitchcock. It is closer to "The Lady Vanashes" than to "Psycho". Of course, there's plenty of suspense and a dandy of a plot. Kidnapping, robbery, arson and murder are involved, along with a touch of larceny. Bruce Dern and Barbara Harris make an appealing pair of almost-good guys William Devane, Karen Black and a creepy Ed Lauter are the villains. Fittingly the tensest scenes (the kidnapping of a bishop a sequence where the hero's car goes out of control) are also the funniest. "Family Plot" is a reminder that the cinema's master of suspense was also a joker of genius. There is very little on-screen violence, but a number of events provide some spine-tingling moments. Hitch and scenarist Ernest Lehman re-teamed for the first time since "North By Northwest" and John Williams contributed a sparkling score. Not one of Hitch's best but better than most of the '70s thrillers and no apologies need be made of it. [filmfactsman]
