"[DOLLARS] snaps, crackles, and pops like a heist flick should." -- Grade: B+
Warren Beatty and Goldie Hawn star in this high-spirited caper about a kittenish prostitute (Hawn) and a mild-mannered security expert (Beatty) who commit what should be the perfect crime. They break into three safe-deposit boxes stowed inside a German bank and steal more than a million dollars from an assortment of high-level crooks. Unfortunately for them, the crooks get wind of the theft, and the result is a wild chase that takes the pair across Germany with gamblers, black marketeers, and drug traffickers on their tail. Director Richard Brooks serves up a stylish and atmospheric vision of after-hours Hamburg, ripe with exotic dancers, drug smuggling, and kinky sex. Goldie Hawn scampers and struts across the screen while Beatty poses cool and calculating, orchestrating the heist of a lifetime.
Description by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:
Superstars Warren Beatty and Goldie Hawn both took on the mantle of Robin Hood as they set out to fleece the criminally over-privileged (drug dealers, racketeers, gamblers, etc.) of $1 million from a safe-deposit vault in Hamburg. He's a security expert, she's a hooker. Together they made a dynamite combination at the box-office.
In this fun film a security specialist installs a sophisticated alarm system in a bank he plans to rob with the help of a ditzy prostitute. This comic caper was filmed on location in Germany, ripe with secret safe-deposit boxes, drug smuggling, and big-time crooks who fall prey to the calculating thief and his seductive accomplice. This stylish romp features a fabulous score from jazz giant Quincy Jones.
