2:39 American banks are always so grand.
6:17 “It was like my high school reunion, except everybody liked me.”
8:03 I have so much affinity with clumsy Sandy.
14:53 FBI Barbie.
16:43 “This is teaching a dog to become a butterfly.”
24:14 Nick Offerman and Jerry from ER make a fun team.
32:36 I like Miss US went from toddler wanting her crown to ballsy lady standing up to the kidnappers within the space of two minutes.
45:08 “He’s in love with me but I hate castles.”
49:10 Dolly having a stunt double really confused me for a second there, but hey, DOLLY!
55:38 “I love shopping in Vegas. Where else can you find a 24 hour wiggery?”
1:03:29 Love that he wants to improve the production values on the kidnapping tapes.
1:15:17 It’s fun they can only express each other through fighting.
1:30:45 The headdress is providing more entertainment than I would have thought possible.
1:33:11 She can’t do a foot chase still with all the feathers.
1:36:11 “There’s a cannon in my porthole.”
1:37:49 He dived in with jeans on… big mistake.
1:40:35 “You’re so buoyant.” I… don’t think that’s a compliment.

Thoughts

This was a lot better than I’d expected it to be, lovely Sandy running around being slightly hopeless but also getting to the heart of the mystery. I liked the two partners being antagonistic towards each other to start with but gradually growing to respect, if not like, each other.

I feel like not everything was wrapped up as neatly as it should have been - the two brothers took over the gambling debts but the original debt holder still exists so surely the danger is still out there? And some elements didn’t age as well as you’d like, the costumes, the disguises. But it was fun and that’s all I ask for at the moment.
