“Is she serious? Oh my God… that’s just pathetic.”
~Tara Rose in To Catch a Thief
This is probably one of the funniest scenes from last year. After Tara has been strip searched, rookie security guard Lydia starts to leave the office. Not paying attention to what she is doing, Lydia open up the door right in her face and knocks herself out cold. Tara’s character reacts with priceless disbelief and bewilderment.
What really stands out for me is that on the first take, Tara was practically rolling on the floor laughing. She even had to turn away because she could not watch it play out, it was so hysterical. However, when it came time for Tara to deliver her line, she did it in a calm, dead-pan style that contrasted nicely with the absurdity of Lydia’s comical actions.
