But then a crazy couple called the Mayflowers blackmail him to steal some of the works of Leonardo da Vinci, as they carry the secret to mass fortune.
If he refuses, they threaten to kill his friend Tommy....
First thing you need to know about this movie is if you don't like Bruce Wilis in smirk mode turned up to eleven, you will hate this.
If you want one of the most daring, original summer blockbusters ever made, then this is for you.
The reason that this is original, is because it was one of the big releases in 1991 behind T2 and Robin Hood, and it has one of the strangest narratives I have ever seen.
And I fell in love with he film because I just went with it. Yes there is cheesy singing and people falling from one building and landing in another, but isn't this a Bruce Willis vanity product?.
apart from the fashion, Haircuts and earrings, the film has aged well, and even though the jokes are stale, you cannot help but to sit and watch it in all it's entirety.
I've yet to meet anyone else who actually likes this film (or admit to it), but it's fun, over the top and just tongue in cheek all the way.
