Hudson Hawk (1991) (part 8 of 13)
Oh, is it time for me to jump on the ol’ Hudson Hawk gravy train? ‘Cause I could easily let someone else cut in front… No? Shoot. Well, I guess we all have to meet our maker at some point, so let’s get to it, shall we?
When we last saw Hawk and Anna, they were fleeing a decapitated elephant, knock-out gas, and a pair of Rick Astley clones. So their adventures are sure to get zanier in the next fifteen minutes that I’ll be covering them.
After slipping through a side door into a secret passageway, Anna numbly asks Hawk why he just pulled the whole “throw a random object into a security field and draw a lot of attention to yourself” routine (a classic amongst expert cat burglars, I’m told). Hawk, always the goofball, blames the incident on Pokey the stuffed elephant.
The passageway eventually takes Hawk and Anna to the underground Vatican subway, which, according to our vacant-eyed heroine, delivers all of the Pope’s mail. You have to wonder, right? Does the Pope get the same dozen fliers for cable/internet bundles we normal Joes see every day? Something tells me he does, but they’re dipped in gold leaf to give them just a pinch of papal flair. But I’m getting off track.
