A retired cop blackmails ex burglar Bernice into paying him $20,000 - thus burgling. Paid to get a dentist's jewelry back from her ex's apartment, someone murders the ex and Bernice is a suspect. She investigates.
Bernice "Bernie" Rhodenbarr is a burglar by trade, and she runs a bookstore as well. Her friend Carl Hefler is a dog groomer. After a successful burglary, it's discovered that a dead body was in the house she burgled. As she's the only one who can be placed at the scene of the crime, she has to use her criminal skills to clear her name of the murder AND avoid getting charged with the burglary.Written by
In an interview Whoopi Goldberg explained how they changed the main character from a man to a woman: "We just took out all the sex!" See more »
In the scene where she meets Graybow in his apartment she punches him in the nuts while he is holding a meat cleaver in his hands. They show the meat cleaver hit the floor, then his face of pain, then him dropping to the floor. If you look closely in the bottom left corner of the screen, you'll see the meat cleaver in his hands again. See more »
The movie is OK, a typical Whoppi Goldberg movie, with all the one liners, the humor, the good and bad guys bit; everything that goes into a comedy. What I really like about this motion picture is that they had Whoppi Goldberg wearing contact lenses (I think it was blue), I had to take a second look to see what is making Whoppi look so beautiful, I found out it was the contacts.
