CHARAAADEE! I've finally seen it after what seems like EVER.
Regina Lampert gets caught up with some crime loving thugs after her husband is mysteriously murdered.
Audrey Hepburn is veeery good in thrillers (Wait Until Dark, omg) and I wish she did more! Her character somehow maintains a calm-ish attitude despite being almost killed on many an occasion by three scary dudes. Reggie manages to evade being killed by scary metal claw man or when she's in between two guns and doesn't know who or what to believe.
One thing I noticed being my analytical self was that the very beginning, a water gun is pointed at Regina by her friend's son and at the end another one is being pointed at her but unfortch, this was not a water gun. ;)
*insert record scratching noise*
Wait. I just read on IMDB that Cary Grant turned this down at first and it was being considered as a vehicle for Warren Beatty & Natalie Wood. Please excuse me for a minute while I go cry.
AS I WAS SAYING...
The lines in this movie were so witty and hilarious. During the funeral scene I was laughing so hard I was making inhuman noises. I also loved the fact that there was Multiple-Personality Grant. Seriously, he had like 7 names. Whenever he introduces a new name, Regina always asked if there was a Mrs New Name. Yes, but they're divorced. :)
The end was also pretty funny - Regina wants to get married to whatever his name was at this point and she says she hopes they have a lot of boys so she can name them all after him.
