Product Description

Clark County, Texas trailer housewife Lorna (Gina Gershon) is fed up with her small-time thief husband Dale (Val Kilmer), especially after he didn't plan on sharing the $100,000 cash he'd robbed at gunpoint from the local savings & loan. But before she and her best friend Tiny (Kelli Giddish of ''Law & Order: Special Victims Unit'') can split the loot and start a new life, they'll have to find the money, dispose of a dead body, distract the nosy sheriff (Ray Liotta) and outsmart a persistent private investigator (Wayne Duvall of O Brother, Where Art Thou?). Richard Riehle (Office Space) co-stars in this pitch-black comedy/thriller about nasty double-crosses, bloody doublewides, and a whole bunch of unexpected twists that will leave you Breathless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucy and Ethel with cigarettes and whiskey August 30, 2012
By Rae
Format:DVD
Excellent movie; it's funny and entertaining- Val Kilmer and Ray Liotta are good in the film and are a couple of names to draw people in (though Kilmer is in it very little- even though the plot revolves around him figuratively and literally). But the stars of the movie are definitely Kelli Giddish and Gina Gershon, the actresses played well off each other and they reminded me of "I Love Lucy" episodes with their back and forth bickering and scheming about the mess they are in.

I would recommend this movie for purchase; it's a movie that even though you know what's going to happen after watching it once, it's still entertaining to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars DOES BLOOD MAKE ME LOOK FAT? August 18, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I enjoyed the opening credits with bright use of the color red and showing the painted hands of a women preparing dinner. Gina Gershon stars as Lorna in this dark comedy that takes place in Texas in 1981. Dale (Val Kilmer) her husband of 17 years, is laid out on the floor as Gina's girlfriend Tiny (Kelli Giddish looking like a young Jane Curtin) walks in.

As things go on Val Kilmer, who is now tied up in a chair and has confessed to a bank robbery, is accidentally killed. The women suppose the money is hidden somewhere in the trailer. They decide to look for the loot and dispose of the body using household appliances. As the story goes on, the plot takes a number of twists, so much so that the final twist becomes easy to figure out.

This is a Coen style comedy, but falls short of the masters. I enjoyed this quirky film in spite of some of the predictability. Several laugh out loud moments as Gina creates a memorable character.

PARENTAL GUIDE: No F-bombs, sex, or nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smoky, bloody, sexy insanity December 9, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
A great film that's bloody, over the top, full of punchy dialogue, unexpected twists/turns, and a great model for low budget filmmaking. Why? Ignore having stars like Gina Gershon (in usual top form), Kelli Giddish (L&O: SVU star), Val Kilmer and Ray Liotta, they made this in a single setting and its immediate surroundings. The low budget indie sci-fi classic "Primer" is another example where you can learn from those who've successfully made a film set in a limited number of physical locations to keep costs down.

In this case a house trailer in the middle of nowhere and a few cars are all it takes to tell the tale of a women (Gershon) and her best friend (Giddish) trying to figure out whether husband Val Kilmer indeed committed a bank robbery (netting $100,000), if so where he hid the money and avoiding the threat of the local sheriff awaiting a search warrant outside (Liotta).

If you have allergies/asthma or just quit smoking you might want to rethink watching this as the two ladies smoke nearly non-stop the entire film. Sort of a 40s/50s vibe though it's not set in that time period. And if you're squeamish note there's a lot of blood in this one as the insanity increases as the women start to tear the small trailer apart searching for money. Give it a try and just enjoy the nutty, bloody fun and games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining September 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie had a little of everything. Comedy, suspense, thriller, and even a little romance. Very entertaining. Kellie Giddish was great in her movie debut. I would recommend watching the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood , Guts, and TPQs August 28, 2012
By Hank
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Gina Gershon(Lorna) and Kelli Giddish(Tiny) have great chemistry as their characters' predicament goes from bad to bloody. The whole movie takes place in a trailer out in the middle of NoWhere, Texas . The plot contains some surprises and some not-so-surprising twists and turns. The dialogue is funny as the girls try to deal with their seemingly hopeless situation. It's a fun movie to watch but not for the squeamish.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did the makers of DEXTER complain ? September 1, 2012
Format:DVD
This film works like a play.
Really no scenes as much as all the dialogue taking place in a trailer.

It felt like a character study exercise for actors more than an actual film.
With the main characters doing a great job with their acting and continuous dialogue.

The opening sequence was a full rip-off of the opening credits for the TV show DEXTER.

Bottom line -- impressive acting talents and character portrayals , but not really an enjoyable or interesting movie.

P.S.
What happened to Val Kilmer ?
Years ago he was poised to be the next big thing, then he suddenly kind of just faded away.

I think I will go look that up now that I am curious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this movie! January 10, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
We rented this by chance and had no idea what we were in for. It is a quirky, dark comedy with twists and turns galore. Don't be deterred by the bloody scenes - stick with to the end. I have told many people about this movie as I had never heard of it before. I loved watching it for the second time once I knew what the outcome was.
