Hudson Hawk (1991) (part 12 of 13)

On the castle grounds now, Tommy reaches into the golf bag and pulls out Snickers’ bomb launcher. After some golfing banter (Jesus, even Riggs and Murtaugh had one or two serious moments. Here we just get banter, banter, banter, banter all the live long day!), Tommy shouts out, “Fore!”

Kaplan hears this, and I would imagine he also hears the huge explosion that follows. Very stealthy, Tommy. What’s next, phoning someone a day in advance to let them know you’ll be attacking them from behind? Hawk seems to agree, telling him to set the timer next time.

Kaplan and Butterfinger go out to investigate, and Kaplan orders Kit Kat, who’s now disguised as a statue [?], to guard the Mayflowers with his life. And when he walks, Kit Kat makes scraping and grinding noises, like a marble statue coming to life in a horror movie. Damn. I can’t believe I like this movie.

I was going to ask you guys who won the Caruso-Medusa fight, but never mind.

Cut to Minerva, now holding a… well. Not sure what you’d call it, but it’s basically a vertical crossbow, and she shoots Kit Kat with a few arrows. He falls to the ground, with all of his various business cards spilling out onto the floor. Before he dies, he holds up one last card to Anna that reads “I ALWAYS LIKED YOU”, and secretly unties her.

David Caruso’s mantra, which he repeats to himself nightly.

And that about does it for David Caruso in this film. I wonder if Dennis Franz ever busted his balls about this role during the first season of NYPD Blue, when his ego began to rival—Well, when it began to rival that of the gentleman who has top billing in this film.
