The title to this blog post was my favorite line from the television series, The A Team. I adored that show. It was always a lot of fun and George Peppard was completely cool under pressure. The whole premise of the show was fun- the way the story lines allowed for reality to be suspended was a great escape. Some people thought the original series was cheesy but I really, really had a thing for Hannibal. I guess I was in the minority because most of my girlfriends were all about Face. He was cute but he couldn’t compete with Hannibal in my book.
I finally got the time to go see the new The A Team on the 4th of July. What better way to spend the day than dinner with the parents and then a movie about Federal fugitives? I really enjoyed this movie. It was a lot of fun and I found myself grinning through the whole thing. It was over the top. Liam Neeson was great as Hannibal and the other actors were amazing, too. This movie stayed true to the spirit of the series. The bad guys were uber-bad. The good guys were very, very good and very, very sexy. All in all, I recommend this one for laughs and escapism. Just like the original show. A great escape. Literally and figuratively.
I hope they have a “plan to come together” again. I’ll be there.
