[Quick Summary: A retired cat thief is framed for burglaries he didn't commit.]
The One Thing I Liked the Least:
- The script takes a long time to get going.
The One Thing I Liked the Most:
- Francie is a strong lead who pins Robie from the very beginning.
She knows what she wants + invites interaction with Robie = Romantic fireworks
ex. "I've been waiting all day for you to mention that kiss I gave you last night."
ex. "The kind of man I want doesn't have a price."
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: Francie takes no prisoners, and Robie bobs and weaves like a champ. They're equally matched, i.e., sparks fly.
FYI: The Francie-Robie exchange on p. 51-52 is a good read.
