Leonard Part 6 (1987) (part 3 of 15)

Mr. Butler says this sixth adventure began under the Golden Gate Bridge. Come on, did he even need to say it? It’s San Francisco, so of course all the important stuff happens under the Golden Gate Bridge! The High Visibility Landmark Rule is always in effect in crap movies.

Mr. Butler informs us that a “team of frogmen” working for the bad guys did a little diving in the bay one day. Coincidentally, we flashback to that happening. And Mr. Butler is quite talented, because as we’ll soon see, he’s describing events that he didn’t even witness. Nor did Leonard witness them to describe them to the butler. Well, if you’re going to hire a butler, hire one that’s omniscient, I always say.

The frogmen swim through murky underwater footage. There’s an abrupt cut to an upscale neighborhood, where a redheaded guy with no eyebrows secretly scopes out a swimming pool. He watches a swimsuit-clad Asian girl (with chopsticks in her hair, natch) slip into the pool.

I’m guessing it’s not a heated pool.

Sitting next to the pool is a white guy in a robe and big shades. He opens up a manila folder, and inside are several headshots of Gloria Foster, who unfortunately had Diana Ross’ stylist and Boy George’s makeup artist that week.

”Yeah! She’ll be perfect for Beyond Thunderdome!”

Oh my. I never thought Gloria’s rundown, exhausted housewife look in the Matrix movies would be a step up, but as they say, every day is a learning experience.
