Another of my absolutely favourite movies, of that era and all time. Lots of momentum.

The old school sets really helps this stand the test of time.

Geena Davis is a treasure. Her followup the next year The Long Kiss Goodnight cheekily ties this, Cutthroat Island, with her characters in Earth Girls are Easy and especially Beetlejuice.

Mind. Thelma and Louise and A League of Their Own was between those two. Treasure.

This was such big fun silliness.

I will never forget sitting in the movie theater in Knoxville, TN with my parents and halfway through the movie my dad said, in his "quiet" voice, "Well hell, this is just Indiana Jones with boobs...nice boobs tho."

The whole audience cackled and I cannot watch this movie without hearing his voice in my head.
