Can you gets these bottles into Copenhagan?
What is it?
Pure, consentrated, acid. From one ounce, they will make 300,000 capsules of LSD. If you put one of these into the water supply, all of Hamburg takes the trip!

The title (that is, the original title "$") appears only in the form of a giant character, as would be used in a sign, being transported by a crane while the other opening credits are displayed in the usual way. See more »
I liked the style of the movie a lot. The music and the camera work were pretty interesting.
I noticed some reviewers were confused by the plot. It's the viewers job to fill in some blanks. Some people will dislike that, others will appreciate that their intelligence is not being insulted.
The movie consists of three main sections. The intro, the heist and the getaway. Goldie Hawn is adorable in the intro section. Beatty does a nice job during the heist section. The getaway is the weak part of the movie, if only because it challenges my ability to suspend my disbelief. Some parts of it were cool though.
I think Beatty was convincing both as a security expert and thief. Hawn, as mentioned above is adorable (I admit I have always found her attractive.) Reasons to watch the movie - you like Beatty, you like Hawn, you like heist movies (though there are better,) or you like quirky 70s movies. The last item should not be overlooked, because there's a distinctive style in certain 70s movies that's no longer seen
for example the implication that sex and drugs and alcohol is simply
a lifestyle, rather than a problem that needs to be addressed.
