The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden ★★★★

Funniest thing i’ve seen all year. About a girl in love with money who gets a job in a bank, the bank is held up and she’s kidnapped, the getaway car crashes and she’s thrown along with the loot into an underwater cave, she escapes, the money’s stuck down the cave. The rest of the movie is her drive to get it back, unabatedly learning geology, scuba, swimming, mountain climbing, hostessing, everything along the way.

Like his earlier Down the Drain, it’s putting the main character on some freewheeling idea train. And turn your attention away for a minute and you’re in a completely different movie wondering how you got there. Loved.
