AMBER HEARD STEALS MOVIE!
on November 20, 2010
This is a chick comedy, but not a "chick flick." It is a comedy women would enjoy more than men, but also one men can enjoy. I would rate it four and a half stars. Heather Graham (Alex)gets fired from her job and comes home early to find her boy friend with another woman (relationship over). She has some penned up frustrations. While out shopping for a blouse, a man takes the one she wants to buy. When he refuses to let her have the blouse, she knocks him out, something the movie claims is illegal in Texas. At her court mandated anger management class she meets up with other angry women. One of which is Jennifer Coolidge (Stella) who runs an exterminator company and Nikki (Amber Heard) who is a dental technician who sucks on lolly-pops during most of the movie, when she is not drinking or smoking. The girls meet at a dive bar after group therapy to kick back a few. Nikki, who looks adorable, has some real issues and decides to handle men (a-holes) by giving them what they deserve. At one point in the movie she sets a drunk on fire who has been patting women on the butt.
Alex is hired by Stella to look over her books as she is being audited. As it turns out the IRS agent is a stalker who sneaks around and takes photos of Heather. Meanwhile at the bar, a woman from the group is punched in the face by her drunk husband (movie shows her getting hit and going to the floor). Our aforesaid trio follows the drunk husband by car and runs him off the road (and perhaps the only cliff in Texas) to his fiery death. The girls decide to be quiet about the whole incident, which is later ruled an accident. Heather, who watches "Law and Order" comes up with the proper alibi that police can't verify is a lie. Later Heather starts to date the detective investigating the death and murders in the city. After another man dies, Heather suspects her girlfriends kill more than bugs.
Amber Heard as Nikki was the most colorful character in the group. Her attitude and lines were the best, especially the story she tells about how she paid for her prom dress. No nudity. Adult situations and the f-bomb. AMBER! AMBER! AMBER!
