    ★★★★

    Awesome final chase:
    Diane: "Where does this highway take us?"
    Joe: "This is no highway, this is the Los Angeles Riverbed."
    Diane: "How do we get out?"
    Joe: "There's a cut-off up ahead. Leads to Glendale."

    Aside from the classic L.A. River chase, Joan Dixon is the best part of this as the cool femme fatale with a sensitive streak.

    Sadly... meh. Writing and directing completely by-the-numbers. Very sad, actually.

    Ann Hathaway was the most fun, getting orgasmic over diamonds. Helena Bonham Carter - as, basically, Betsy Johnson, had some moments too. For the most part, these fabulous women were completely undone by fall-flat timing and lackluster direction. :(

    What was up with the vocal choir interlude during the train heist? What was up with the Kasdans? What...???

    The worst dialogue since... a long time ago. So many stupid, har-har jokes. I liked 20% of it - Carrie Fisher's face, Mark Hamill's finale, Yoda.
