Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Despite two magnificent actors and a magnificent director, this movie has always been a disappointment for me. The jokes didn't work, the action was slow, the final revelation I could see it coming from miles away. Wasted occasion IMHO.
You left out the Ennio Morricone score...a minor film to be sure, but I enjoy the offbeat Eastwood/MacLaine chemistry here. I certainly enjoy it more now that I can see it in its proper form on DVD, compared to the faded, cropped prints of yore on local afternoon TV matinee shows.
