Unexpected pleasure
24 April 1999 | by rich-106See all my reviews

I caught this on cable. It started out well but I figured it would fall apart eventually but instead it got better and better. I don't know why it went to cable so fast and why there are currently no reviews in the database. It was an entertaining caper movie with great characters and truly unsuspected twists and turns set in New Orleans. Watch for great scenes: the Senators (Holbrook) put down of the detective ' .. don't ever even look at me again...' as well as later, Holbrook's "Apologize!' scene; the muscleman Reuben's method of showing how tough he is ; Coco's sexual heat scenes, Lizard's battle of wits with a determined FBI agent Sadie (Emma);Sadie (Emma Thompson) and (Rickman's) clever repartee. I did find the audio a bit difficult to follow because of background noise and character accents, and why an accountant was assigned by the corporation to deal with the kidnappers was unclear but on the whole an 8 out of 10 film.
