Hudson Hawk (1991)

Should I see it?
No.


Rabidly anti-Catholic, dopey and poorly executed. Yep, that about sums it up.

Bruce Willis plays Eddie Hawkins, a cat burglar who is hired by rich psychos Darwin and Minerva Mayflower (Richard E. Grant and Sandra Bernhard) to steal the works of Leonardo da Vinci. There's something about some guys wanting to hurt him and David Caruso shows up pretending to be a statue or something...I dunno, it's all so stupid it kinda blurs into one big dumb ball of wasted time.

Despite Willis' irritating smirk and the mockery of Catholicism, the movie does have some moments that are enjoyable. Richard E. Grant in particular gives a lively performance and there are some rather clever bits...Who am I kidding? It doesn't matter. This is a lousy movie. Don't bother.
