    It Happened One Night

    ★★★★

    Film #29 of 31 for Scavenger Hunt #31.

    Oh boy... oh boy... wowwee!

    I...Is that a bloodstache?

    What an unintentional comedy. Those special effects were woeful, holy crap! that line delivery and acting, so bad and dry I chuckled when the main character was having a showdown with the villain and her horrible acting negated the seriousness of her lines about rape. I can't believe Michelle Rodriguez, Sir Ben Kingsley and Michael Madsen are in this. That ending made me spit out my water for how jarring and awful the editing in that scene was.
