Goldie shines

This was one of Spielberg's early films and was fun to watch. Goldie Hawn was funny and at her best in the role as a mother trying to get back the child that was taken from her while she was in jail. She highjacks her husband from prison and they go on a funny road trip in a police car to try to get him back. Ben Johnson was great as the leading officer in the chase to capture them.

Anyway, even though 'Duel' was a pretty cool flick, I thought this one was rather disappointing, to be honest. First of all... read more

Anyway, even though 'Duel' was a pretty cool flick, I thought this one was rather disappointing, to be honest. First of all, it all depends where you stand concerning Goldie Hawn. Basically, she played here the same character she has portrayed in most of her movies, her typical hysterical whining rather annoying chick, so if you have a weak spot for her gimmick, you will probably enjoy this movie for than I did, otherwise, it might not work for you. For Spielberg, I think it was a rather interesting attempt to deliver” read more
