1:30 I actually don’t know the story of Anthony & Cleopatra… my bad.
7:15 Coke is really not good for you, is it? If it can dissolve an egg.
10:15 I would think scaffolding was a bit more robust than that.
13:20 That’s a really nice Porsche… shame we only saw it for a second, haha!!
15:51 “One more and I get a Shawshank jacket.”
29:51 “You can have excuses or results, not both.”
30:08 Why is she watching Bake Off??
38:23 Rock jenga!
40:34 That must be the first time a snowball has helped in a prison escape.
56:24 Is there a profiler school? Sounds fun.
1:11:48 Wow, she’s a proper psychopath!
1:15:54 Yay, Jurassic Park reference!
1:27:19 Anyone else think they’re gonna get trapped down in this bunker?
1:38:52 Resting failure face.
1:43:16 Normally I’d be mad at Ed Sheeran popping up but that was perfect.

Thoughts

Ah, loved this. It’s a frothy fun heist movie and nothing more. The plotting isn’t intricate, other than the inevitable twists and turns and double-crossing along the way, but it grabs you and sweeps you along on a wave of the three fabulous leads and quite a lot of comedy. I wasn’t expecting to laugh as much as I did.

I’ve seen some snippy reviews and critics opinions to this, but it’s supposedly the highest movie draw Netflix have seen, and I believe they’re going to make two sequels going forward, so it can’t be all that bad! I really enjoyed it, and to be honest, was sad when it was over!
