Hudson Hawk (1991) (part 10 of 13)
We quickly jump-cut to a shot of a helicopter flying toward Castle Da Vinci and making its landing approach. Before the helicopter lands, the film cuts to the interior of the castle, where Kaplan is pacing and muttering some nonsense about that “damn meddlesome Vatican organization”. Apparently, the Vatican is the equivalent of Scooby-Doo and his gang. No matter how well thought out and executed your plan is, you never know when the Pope and his domed bulletproof vehicle will just happen to roll into your town and put your brilliant scheme to ruins.
This part of the castle is filled with all sorts of random wooden crap. A few of the pieces have gears on them to suggest archaic inventions, and some just look like messed up art easels. There’s even a miniature cannon on a glass display table, which I’m sure Leonardo himself invented. Right after the printing press, flash photography, microwaves, and pay-per-view television.
A door suddenly swings open and Anna and the Candy Bar Brigade enter, with Butterfinger carrying an unconscious Hawk over his shoulder. They head down the stairs to Kaplan and his ecstatic cheerleading as he screams, “Hey, way to go, Anna!” Anybody want to hazard a guess as to why someone from the Vatican is working with the CIA here? Because I got nothing.
