Don’t know how I forgot about this movie. I do have the DVD in my collection for a really long time now.
Recently I decided to re-watch the movie and now it’s time to make a blog post about it!
In this one 4 stunning women/models decide to rob some banks. The leader does also is the getaway driver and so we get some nice car chases in the movie….

And here is the video:
Interesting and sexy scenes!
I like that they really take their disguise very seriously. They dress up in rather clunky men’s clothes or sports clothes so that you can’t even tell that they are women unless you get a closer look.
Also, their masks are very effective as they really disguise their faces.
Sadly they are quite sloppy when it comes to keeping their masks on. 2 of them are already unmasked when the cops show up who can clearly see their faces.
Also, the 2 masked women quickly unmask (sadly off screen) as they drive away with the female cop. The sexy lieutenant now knows how all of them look. So, they do have quite a problem now…
The scene with the body search is…..damn sexy! The female cop is really sexy and isn’t afraid of showing it (mildly) throughout the movie. And when supermodel Gisele Bündchen searches her body really thoroughly…. that’s insanely sexy…in my opinion.
In my version of the movie all 4 would keep their masks on (Gisele would wear one too) and the lieutenant and the male cop would battle them hand to hand. During the struggle, more cops would arrive at the scene and they would start to overpower the bank robbers. Now they would try to unmask them, one by one. After some resistance 3 of them would be fully unmasked while Gisele would try to escape. The cop would follow her and they would have a long fight where she would desperately try to keep her mask on. 😉
I do have a short BONUS video for you guys!
In this one, you can see how the 4 chicks arrive in New York and later changes their outfits into beachwear(!) as they try to escape the cops.
Oh my! I wouldn’t mind being that cop in that scene 😉
Not every day you check a car with 4 models in bikinis in it!
Actually, this movie was featured in one of the earliest posts on this blog back in 2013.
Some weeks ago I still thought that it actually still was on the blog, but it wasn’t anymore….and honestly, I am not sure what exactly happened.
However, I was planning to make a new post about it. A nice guy recommended me a store that actually has a DVD of this rare movie quite a long time ago.
Finally, I bought the DVD, even it was rather expensive in total, but hey….I just had to have this one in the best quality available.
So, why this movie is so interesting?
Because it’s about a gang of female robbers! They are wearing full masks in two rather short scenes and then are running around in sexy smoothskin wetsuits and masks for nearly 20 minutes!
So again, it would partially fit my Frogwoman blog as well, and I will make a post on it as well, with an additional short scene. More on that later.
So, let’s start this post with the two scenes where you can see the original team of 3 women!

And here is the video:
Yeah, two good scenes with effectively masked women! Really well disguised!
As later on, they are dressing like men to fool anyone who might see them. In a later video, you see who they even hide their “twins”.
The unmaskings are rather disappointing for me since they are cheating big time! I guess the director or someone else was concerned that their hair would look messy if they just pull these masks off. So they got their hair done nicely and held their masks close to their faces and removed them from then on so it would look more or less like they would pull the masks off their heads in that scene. 🙁
I certainly wouldn’t have done it and would have shown their unmaskings without any cuts or tricks.
Perhaps some folks might have been surprised that there are women under these masks, even I think you certainly can see that in close-ups on their masked faces, that these aren’t men…if you look at the “exposed” eye sections.
So, I divided the long hotel robbery scene into 4 videos to keep these short.
That way the chances are better that they can stay on Youtube.
3 more women have joined the team to make the big heist that they have planned.
A big hotel on a rather remote island is their target!

And here are the videos:
Well, that was quite a robbery! I just love the idea to have 6 women in wetsuits and (modified) scuba masks robbing a hotel!
The preparations pay off and the job goes pretty smoothly for the most part.
Of course, my highlight is the ending where the two guys sneak up on her and then try to unmask her! That is so sexy. The way she desperately struggles to keep her mask on is really well done.
She knows exactly that she would be finished if they manage to yank that scuba mask off. Yeah, she would still have her hood on, but they would see a face that they then could describe to the cops.
Of course, the scene should be a little longer, but ok, it’s a rather AWESOME scene anyhow 🙂
Luckily they are wearing sexy black wetsuits that are appropriate for such a nightly action.
You can find an additional scene on my other blog!
Don’t get me wrong, the movie isn’t bad, but especially for the ones who love to see masked women….it was a wasted opportunity. 🙁
For obvious reasons I re-watched a lot of the Sean Connery movies in the last weeks, and this was one of them.
The starting position is really promising:
You have grandmaster Sean Connery and you have the stunning Catherine Zeta-Jones as a master thief!
What you could do with such ingredients….
But let’s start at the beginning of the movie [SPOILERS ahead]:
A thief climbs down a skyscraper and breaks into it, robs a painting, wearing a some odd full face helmet with a display in it.
Only later we get to know this was actually the master thief that is played by Catherine Zeta-Jones. Quite a surprise!
A guess that the whole part was played by a stuntman as you can’t see for sure at any time of which gender the thief is.
But at least the thief was masked during the heist….more on that later.
Time for a video!
In this scene Catherine practises her movements while avoiding the “security measures”.
Ok, the isn’t really masked, but she is wearing a blindfold…which is practically an advanced eye mask.
And good old Sean Connery certainly seems to enjoy what he is seeing…. 😉
I wanted to show more from the movie, but a longer video got blocked right away.
So, I decided to show more interesting scenes from this movie just on pictures.
This scene is quite sexy as Catherine moves carefully through the openings between the fake lasern beams. I totally understand why Sean reacts like that.
Some pictures from other scenes:

[…more SPOILERS ahead]
These pictures show some of the wasted potential of this movie (especially for those who love masked women).
On the first heist you don’t know that it is Catherine, you can’t even see that it is a woman.
On both later heists she doesn’t wear a mask! Completely idiotic…. I am sure the producers said: “We have Catherine Zeta-Jones in our movie! We can’t disguise her pretty face….”.
A really bad decision! Anytime a guard could walk in, she could be filmed the whole time. Only really dumb thieves would break into some place without a mask when there is only a slightest chance for beeing seen/recorded.
She does wear a wetsuit in one scene, but that is only seen from these binocular shots as she quickly puts on a bathrobe.
The scuba scene is rather uninteresting as it is very short and dark. And I am sure that none of the two actors actually dove at all in that scene.
As they get into the room with the golden mask she is wearing that weird suit you see on the pictures above.
What is that? A ski suit? A 70’s b-movie space suit? It doesn’t look good and it isn’t skin tight like it should be.
I mean she is moving through invisible laser beams that would trigger the alarm. Her clothing should be REALLY tight to improve her chances.
There is also a third, final heist…but she doesn’t wear a catsuit or a mask then either. 🙁
Yeah, it is a solid movie…but damn…. still I get a little mad everytime I think what COULD have been….
Imagine Catherine in a real catsuit, with a real mask (cowl).
A guard discovers her, they fight. A second guard arrives.
They try to unmask her. She can barely avoid it, but her mask gets ripped/damaged.
She must flee quickly. Guards chasing her….
Here is the movie title for those who don’t know it:
