Working in an Austin, Texas, beauty parlour in 1954, Nadine Hightower endeavours to retrieve some 'art studies' she injudiciously had taken. Her visit to the photographer leaves him dead and her in possession of highly valuable plans of a proposed new road. With both the police and the murderous villains after her she enlists the help of her (almost) ex-husband Vernon, the none too successful owner of the Bluebonnet Bar. Fortunately the thugs are as much no-hopers as the Hightowers.Written by

When Vernon Hightower (Jeff Bridges) is crawling across the wooden ladder to another roof and catches the rope thrown by Nadine Hightower (Kim Basinger) after being shaken off it by his pursuers, he swings down and into and through a window directly underneath the ladder. The only problem is, his trajectory is clearly carrying him so that his legs will hit the wall below the window but his upper body will hit the window, and the camera cuts away a fraction of a second before he hits and then switches to inside that room and he comes crashing through the window with his entire body fitting nicely through the window.

This is a very cute comedy caper movie. Kim Basinger is perfect as the ditsy West Texas small town girl, and Jeff Bridges is great as her even dumber husband. Rip Torn is also good as the villain. Plot is pretty simple, but fun. I've shared this with several others in the 35+ year old class, and they all enjoyed it. Very good chemistry between the leads.
