    Notes (2)

    • The audience really gets into the mall scene where Penny has her wallet stolen/steals the necklace. When the guy steals her wallet, disgusted audience members can be heard saying "Man!" and "God!" When Penny steals the necklace, audience members yell "Go! Go," encouraging her to hurry and get into the elevator. Then there's a groan of disappointment when they zoom in on the surveillance camera.
