05.19.07DVD I've had this forever and have always put off watching it because it just didn't look good to me. I am a huge fan of Hitch's earlier stuff and even some of his later stuff but something about this movie just seemed overwhelmingly boring to me. I guess it's good that I finally bit the bullet and watched it but... I wasn't pleasantly surprised or anything.

Marnie is a woman who steals money because she's all messed up and a bitch. Sean Connery falls in love with her for no reason and puts up with her for the whole movie then in the end there's a flashback to her childhood and we find out why she's such a bitch all the time. boo hoo. So every scene was either watching Tippi Hedren be a bitch or wonder why Sean Connery's still hanging around her.

There are some typically Hitchcockian silent "tense" scenes but they never really come together like his more classic stuff... and there's even one line where someone says "I always thought a girl's best friend is her mother" which I smirked at then quickly gagged on. The only highlight for me was getting to stare at Diane Baker when she was in her 20s and unbelievably gorgeous.
