Production wrapped in New York City at 6 a.m. on July 31, 1990, and several hours later, the cast and crew boarded a plane to begin the second leg of their international odyssey. After one day of preparation, filming resumed, this time in Rome, Italy, directly across the street from one of the most recognizable wonders of the world, the famed landmark, the Coliseum. Many famous locations throughout Rome and its environs were used for the picture, including the Piazza Navona, the Roman Forum, and the 16th Century Villa Farnese in nearby Caprarola, a vintage town and commune in the Viterbo province in the Lazio region of central Italy.

When I was in High School, I was working at a movie theater. One day at work, the theater was giving away movie promotional extras left over from years past to the employees. One of the items was a promotional T-Shirt for Hudson Hawk. Being a fan of Bruce Willis and a fan of t-shirts, I picked it up. I also decided that if I was going to wear the shirt, I might as well see the movie.
I had heard the rumors: bad bad Bruce Willis vanity project, not worth a damn, much less a rental. Well, that sounded like a challenge to me! So, I rented it, popped it into my VCR and prepared to be in agony. I was very disappointed.
I was stunned at not only how madcap it was, but how well written it was. Sure, it felt like an excuse to rattle off witty one-liners amongst a non-sensical plot, but it did it so WELL. Some of my favorite lines from any movie are in this film.
"How long (were in you prison)?" "Let's just say I never saw E.T."
Some of the references are very early-mid 90s, as to be expected. Still, there's some great, wacky characters, and it's just a good stupid caper movie. Don't listen to the critics - this one is definitely a great film to watch with a group of friends.
