We gave it a C

Joe Pesci plays a lonely tabloid photographer in ’40s Manhattan who has a darkroom in his car trunk and nerve to match his ingenuity. The plot gets uninterestingly complicated as he becomes involved with mobsters, the FBI, and the owner of a cafe-society joint (Barbara Hershey) who makes him go all soft. It’s not that there’s much terribly wrong with The Public Eye; there’s just not much terribly right. C
