Director: Charles Crichton. Cast: Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, John Cleese, Michael Palin. 108 min. Rated R. USA/UK. Comedy/Crime.
After a successful London heist, a group of backstabbing double/triple-crossing thieves try to run off with the diamonds. I know this is a classic, but watching it for the first time, I was constantly bothered by how many comedic situations were driven by a main character not seeing an event that was obviously in his/her field-of-view. And to be honest, I never thought Kevin Kline, as a creator of the comedy, was funny - as opposed to John Cleese, who as a victim of the comedy, is always funny. Or maybe I just enjoy British humor better.
PS: Okay, okay, I confess "He thought that the Gettysberg Address was where Lincoln lived!", and "The London Underground is not a political movement!", are funny.
