So we left Amanda watching Dotty get driven off in the back of a patrol car..
Lee rushes to Amanda.
[Love how he keeps his hand on Amanda’s arm so long as he walks around her Lee’s moving pretty fast though so he’s blurry!]
Amanda: The police have my mother.
Lee: I hope it is the police.
[LOL Amanda must think he’s nuts!]
Lee: Come on, that bug in your mother’s purse will act as a homing device. [Amanda it’s no time to panic]
(Amanda holds up the purse)
Amanda: She left it inside….
[Okay, we can panic!]
BB totally nails this moment.. Lee looks off in the distance, knowing this is really bad..
He looks back at Amanda.. IMHO thinking ohhh nooo I have to tell Amanda Dotty is in a whole lot of trouble.
…Well look we’ll just have to go down to the police station and bail my mother out.
Lee: I hope they really are the police….
…My informant Jerry? ….is dead.
Amanda lets out a big breath.. shocking news..
if only Amanda had known this – she could have followed the police car..
Considering what’s on the line here, Amanda is being quite brave here.. she keeps it together..
Lee and Amanda seem to linger.. and look off into the distance as the scene ends here.. umm why are they not running for the car?!
Ah.. okay.. commercial break..
Anyone interested in creating some more commercial breaks? I’d be happy to insert them!
We cut to Lee and Amanda driving in the Vette- Oh I see.. commercial break- then car!
Amanda: Aw it’s no use. They could have turned off anywhere.
[So many scenes looking through a windscreen! what does it mean?!]
[Yeah.. maybe you should have hurried to start looking! or.. umm.. maybe gotten some other agents to help look for them? tell them the police car number?! nahhhh Lee and Amanda alone must save the day!]
Things aren’t looking good..
Then, driving along, they see a cop car appear ahead of them – they turn their lights on..
Lee: Oh yeah? Look up ahead.! ( Lee points out the cop car) ….Hold on I’m cutting this guy off.
LOL.. we go from this:
To this: (a lovely warner Bros backlot):
Lee cuts off the cop car, turning the Corvette in front of the car. Lee jumps out of the car and kicks one of the cop’s door closed on him..
He then lunges for the cop and starts punching him. [is it just me or is this just plain dumb?!]
The other cop pulls out his gun and points it at Lee [Real cop or not real cop – this was likely no?!]
Other Cop: All right! Hold it right there! Grab some sky NOW! Hands on the roof, feet back.
Amanda joins Lee up against the cop car.
The beaten up cop takes Lee’s gun from him.
Amanda: These aren’t the same policemen, the car that picked up my mother was 1017….
[LOL Lee has that scarecrow look on his face..
you know- HUH?
And Amanda – if you knew the number, why didn’t you tell Lee?]
….Who are we? Bonnie and Clyde???
Ahh yes.. the iconic little moment.. I’m sure this featured front and centre in the adverts!
Block your ears err I mean close your eyes – I find this whole set up meh! worse than meh.. It all seems very contrived to me.. they didn’t rush after Dotty when it was so serious and all.. Amanda didn’t tell Lee what cop car number to look for.. and Lee just rushes in and starts punching one cop while the other is free to aim a gun at him? What the heck??!!! Why didn’t he pull his gun on them? or umm check if Dotty and Zernoff are sitting on the back seat as you ‘drive past to cut them off?’ and .. what’s with the time machine that sends them to a warner bros back lot?! okay okay.. this rant has gotten out of control.. I hear ya!
Were Bonnie and Clyde a romantic couple or just partners in crime? if it’s the former, I could like this a little more. but.. it all just seems like one big set up for this gag and a good advert moment..
Ohhh I feel very naughty criticising such a well known moment.. when I haven’t been able to publish many posts lately.. and then when I do I have a rant?! gah!!! so sorry guys!
On the upside, I thought concerned Lee at telling Amanda her mother has been driven away by killers masquerading as cops looked adorable! Such a great view of his eyes.. swoony..
Maybe Lee just rushed in like that because he panicked.. and it’s Dotty in danger.. but.. well.. that doesn’t really look very good for our superspy no? plus, Amanda cracking a gag like this when her mother is in heaps of danger? Just seems strange to me.. anything else I can find wrong with this? well.. give me time I could come up with a few more.. man I’m soooo narky about this scene – so sorry!
Feel free to rave about how much you love it – I promise I’ll behave
In the interests of not ending on a sour note.. I’ll cover this next scene! We see the cop car pull up at a big building..
It’s the fake cops with Dotty and Zernoff.. uh oh..
Dotty: We should have taken him to a hospital, you can see how sick he is. [Poor Dotty!]
Cop: He’ll be just fine Ma’am
Dotty looks up and sees a large billboard with Mr. Marshmallow.
[Brought to you by smk’s sponsor- Marshmallows!]
Dotty: This doesn’t look like a police station to me.
A fake cop and Dotty help Zernoff walk into the building.
We see a sign..
This is a de-briefing center?
Hmm.. we’ve had a leak in the leak.. so maybe this is a de-brief about Zernoff’s de-brief
Okay guys.. I shall finish here..
I hope you are all well and apologies the posts are coming slower.. Life (and my eyes) have been protesting of late.. Byee for now!
