The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Hudson Hawk (1991)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Hudson Hawk from 1991.  Is it a comical crime caper about stealing classic art, or is its appeal as mysterious as Mona Lisa’s smile?

Can Bruce Willis combine action, comedy and singing?  Can Richard E Grant and Sandra Bernhard get any more over the top without actually eating the set?  Does Andie MacDowell have the funniest lines? Can this movie have any more nods to other movies?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
