Bruce Willis's awful, 1991 vanity piece is an abuse of audience goodwill and a waste of a good cast and director (Michael Lehmann of Heathers). The story, cowritten by Willis, concerns a cat burglar pressured into stealing precious art, including some from the Vatican. But the script is just a convenience upon which Willis piles his vaguely boorish brand of hip irony, assuming his audience will stay with him every step of the way. Certain, self-congratulatory scenes induce cringing--Willis and Danny Aiello, for instance, sing "Side by Side" (to brassy accompaniment on the soundtrack) every time they're working a job--but the overall effect is more irritating and baffling. Keep a good thought for Willis (an underrated actor better than the summer junk we usually see him in) by checking out his superior work in Pulp Fiction and his small but memorable role in Billy Bathgate. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I heard it didn't get a lot of good reviews but I was pleased to see some positive reviews up here. This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Giga Bytes7
Pure fun. Bruce Willis as he should be. Lots of action packed scenes but with great humor through the entire movie. Some not suitable for kids.Published 22 months ago by Peggy Fisher
Totally ridiculous and funny all the way through. A modern day musical set in New Jersey, The Vatican and Italy.Published on Jan. 12 2013 by Debbie Parent
I only gave it four stars because the supporting actor pair are so foul-mouthed, it detracted from the movie. Bruce, Danny, and Andie MacDowell are dynamite. Read morePublished on Nov. 28 2012 by Bryant Litchfield
Contrary to what some critics think, Hudson Hawk is quite an original movie and a classic in its own right. Read morePublished on Aug. 30 2012 by salacious_crumb

Well, don't ever believe the critics. I find when they write bad reviews that's when you got to go see the movie. I'm a big Bruce Willis fan but don't rave about all his movies. Read morePublished on July 30 2004 by "brutus73"
