In 1980, a young musician-composer-songwriter by the name of Robert Kraft was performing with his group, the Ivory Coast, at a restaurant-nightclub in New York's Greenwich Village. In the midst of a musical number, Kraft found himself unexpectedly accompanied on harmonica by someone in the audience. The man with the harmonica turned out to be bartender and aspiring actor Bruce Willis. The two men became fast friends, and Willis would often turn out for Kraft's engagements, and join in the musical proceedings. Willis, who became intimately acquainted with Kraft's entire musical repertoire, was most taken with one song called "The Hudson Hawk." Kraft had come upon the concept one afternoon while walking the streets of New York. Kraft had read a newspaper article about a fierce wind that blew off Lake Michigan nicknamed "The Hawk," and as he wandered toward the west side of Manhattan, bracing himself against a wind corning from the direction of the Hudson River, he thought, "This must be the Hudson Hawk." When Kraft described the genesis of his song to Willis, the actor thought the music would be fitting as the theme for a classic movie character as well. Intrigued, Kraft offered Willis the opportunity to collaborate on the song by writing the lyrics. As those lyrics evolved, so did the characters of Eddie Hawkin's and his best friend and mentor - Tommy "Five-Tone" Messina. For many years, the song remained just that, with both men vowing that if either were ever in the position to produce a film, it would be about the world's greatest cat burglar. Several years, a hit television show, and Emmy and Golden Globe awards later, Willis indeed found himself in that position, and, true to his word, began developing "Hudson Hawk" with Kraft for the big screen. Needing the services of an experienced producer, Willis turned to Joel Silver, for whom the actor had starred in the smash hit Die Hard (1988) and Die Hard 2 (1990). See more »

This movie was supposed to be a big blockbuster hit. but it ended up as almost the end to Bruce Willis's career. Fortunately, that wasn't the case. The whole world likes Willis's acting, action and the characters he portrays.
Although this movie was recently rated among the 10 worst movies of all time at MSN, I found it quite refreshing, interestingly funny and downright campy. I laugh every time I see the movie. how many movies can you say that about?
"Bunny! Ball Ball!" Just precious.
The storyline is as follows. A Dominatrix (Sandra Bernhard) and her megalomaniac husband (Richard E Grant) are setting in motion a plot to take over the world. Willis's character, Eddie Hawkins, is the only person who can stop them.
The plot is a classic and the laughs just keep coming. Complete with Andie McDowell as Hawkins's love interest, this movie is very entertaining.
