Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

Husdon Hawk suffered mercilessly at the hands of critics on its theatrical release, and after the press junket even the director and supporting cast were happy to trash it. Despite the dreck he's put his name to since, I think Richard E. Grant still holds up his hands in horror at the mention of it. Hardly surprising, then, that it has the reputation of a big-budget bomb. I saw it at the movies and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not long ago I spotted it as the most frequently repeated title in a DVD forum poll of films the critics panned but we really enjoyed. I bought the tape on first release and while I'm sure I watched it then I know it's just been gathering dust for about 8 years. To cut a long story short I had teenagers to entertain over the weekend, so I dusted it off and enjoyed it all over again. I'd forgotten how idiosynchratic, brilliantly surreal and utterly brutal it is. The action is bone-crunching Looney Tunes excess, a better live action cartoon than all the Roger Rabbit remake misfires we've seen in the last 5 years. James Coburn is excellent value as 2nd villain, and movie buffs can spot the other references to his classic character Derek Flint - 10 years before Austin Powers 2! If nothing else can make you see the brilliant, intelligent, fractured reality of the story, check the moment at the end of an impossible, improbable, horrifically nightmarish ambulance ride when a character hands the Hawk a card which says "This isn't a dream".

Which is why many people never got it. They were probably expecting DIE HARD or a hard action film but this is delightfully lighthearted and funny in a silly kind of way. NO WAY is it meant to be taken seriously. Like a film where thieves time their robberies to songs is supposed to be real?
Eddie Hawkins (Willis) is the Hudson Hawk, the greatest catburglar who ever lived and he has been blackmailed by the CIA and an OTT camp villian couple called The Mayflowers (Richard E. Grant and Sandra Bernhard). Against his will he is shipped off to Rome (literally) to steal some of DaVinci's greatest works. His friend Tommy (Danny Aiello) and an undercover nun (Andie MacDowell) assist him as he robs the Vatican and tries to shake off a bunch of MTV-generation CIA agents called the Candy Bars (Kit-Kat, Butterfinger, Snickers and Almond Joy). Much adventure and comedy follows.
It's got lots of silly humor and cool stunts and is richly bizzare too. Quite refreshing really. Don't watch this expecting anything else than deliberate silliness. It's a film I can watch when I'm in any mood as it is major fun.
The DVD is in pretty plain Dolby 2.0 surround and is anamorphically enhanced at 1.85:1

I'll admit, I was skeptical. A friend of mine swore that I would love this movie and I doubted it heavily. Whenever my wife and I would visit him he would offer to throw in his DVD of Hudson Hawk and we would beg off, claiming anything from work to do at home to severe stomach cramps. That's how badly we wanted to avoid this film.
One rainy Tuesday afternoon, during my third month of unemployment this friend of mine and I went out for lunch and some DVD shopping. After finishing up we went back to his house and kicked back. He made his usual attempt to convince me to watch Hudson Hawk and for some reason known only to God and the demons that live in my subconscious I said yes. It was one of my most enjoyable movie experiences ever.
It's almost impossible to put into words why I like this movie. It totally defies definition. It is a screwball comedy with a crime caper at it's center and a Secret Service Nun as it's femme fatale. The music is fun and fits well into the pace and scheme of the movie and the running cappucino gag is lame and contrived yet amazingly fun.
It is really an experience that has to be enjoyed first hand. Go out and rent this film if you can. I would just advise buying it outright. It's cheap enough and you won't be disappointed.
Now I just have to find a night when my wife isn't that busy or suffering gastric distress so she can enjoy it too.

My love of this movie began when I was home alone channel sufing. Stumbling across this film on UPN, I checked my Trusty TV Guide and found they only gave it one star. I decided to do a MST3K on this apparently rotten film. I Was unable to do so because there was one small problem. This film is the most convoluted, twisted, Hitchcokian piece of Funny stuff I've ever seen. Being of Fan of totally random stuff, I was over whelmed by the randomness of this film. A butler has Knives spring out of his Arms. Bruce willis ( as Hudson) and Danny Allieo time a burgarly with a rendition of "Swingin on a Star" The pope watches Mr. Ed. And THrough it all, Hudson just wants a coffee. You see the McGuffin of this film may be Da Vinci's Book of Fun & games, but the real driving force in this film is Hudson's coffee. This movie has many one-liners that I can say to my friends and they have absolutly no idea wher it comes from. Many other reviews talk about A Deus Ex Machina ending. I have no idea what tha is really, but the end, the beginning and yes eventhe middle are full of great stuff. Dont Listen to critics! in Some fashion. everyone should see a portion of this underated classic.
