Does anyone else besides me enjoy seeing a big name movie star before they made it big? While this wasn't Renée Zellweger's first film role, it was certainly the first where she had a starring credit, and certainly a far cry from her more demure character in 1996's Jerry Mcguire. Love and a .45 (1994), written and directed by Texas native C.M. Talkington (his first writing and directing credit) stars, along with Ms. Zellweger, an early appearance by Gil Bellows (who appeared in a much more famous film the same year titled The Shawshank Redemption and then found a greater degree of fame on the hit FOX television show Ally McBeal), and the ever-entertaining Rory Cochrane, who was once involved with Zellweger, and would later appear with her in Empire Records (1995). Also appearing are Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Jace Alexander (Eight Men Out), Ann Wedgeworth (My Science Project), Michael Bowen (Night of the Comet), and Peter Fonda (Easy Rider).

The movie, set in Texas, features Bellows and Zellweger as Watty Watts and Starlene Cheatham, respectively, as a young couple in love living together in modest, mobile surroundings (a trailer home) with their main source of income being Watty robbing convenience stores every once in awhile, when not studying or quoting philosophically from the I Ching. Life has been pretty good for the couple, but Starlene has been pushing for Watty to make an honest woman of her, which leads Watty to borrow a large sum of money from an unscrupulous source (loan shark), and now he must contend with two speed-addicted, gun totin' (does everyone in Texas carry a gun?) collection agents in Dinosaur Bob (Combs) and Creepy Cody (Alexander).

As a fan of offbeat indie movies, especially those featuring drugs and crime, this was a not-to-miss DVD. I missed the original release in 1994, but I did see Natural Born Killers, and while I can see the similarities on the surface, they are really two very different movies. Watching this, I experienced twist after twist, so I never knew which of the underdogs was going to come out on top, or who was going to win this round of the battle for life. Renee Zellweger will shock the pants off the viewer as a young trailer park resident who turns to a life of serious crime and murder, so she's worth the price of admission alone.

Frenzied, stylish road movie in the off-beat lovers-on-the-run vein of Natural Born Killers or True Romance. Watty (Gil Bellows) and Starlene (Renee Zellweger) are our heros on the run after a botched robbery attempt when Watty and his vicious accomplice Billy (Rory Cochrane) leaves a counter girl dead, at the hands of Billy. On there trail are the demented criminals, Creepy Cody, Dinosaur Bob and Billy, who was left for dead. But our lovers are not killers, just simply misjudged. The over-the-top acting by an excellent cast and a surprisingly smart and lively script make for an exceptional film. Among road movies, this ranks as one of the very best. Rated R for strong brutal bloody violence, pervasive strong profanity, sexual situations, drug use and content, and a scene of nudity.

The opening scene of this movie is so brilliantly handled it just sucks you in and never lets go. Out to rob a convience store minded by a dim-witted teenager, our hero(?) just can't
help laying a little big-brotherly advice and philosophy on the
poor lad before getting around to actually emptying the till.
The dialogue between the two is handled so gracefully and with
such wit by all concerned that you just can't help wanting to find out what's next, even when it gets frightenly violent.
Renee Zelleweger is an absolute gem throughout, as an oversexed,
undereducated gun moll. This movie explores what happens when
people with Texas-sized dreams meet the limitations of their
squirrel-sized brains, and manages to do so with wit, style and
a light touch, even as it gets breath-takingly violent. And, yes, folks, Peter Fonda DOES steal the whole picture in his brief
turn as Starlene's burnt-out hippie dad. Don't miss this!

Okay, first off, you cannot go wrong with a movie that has the Butthole Surfers and the Jesus and Mary Chain on the soundtrack.
Now, this was another of those movies I rented because I got to Blockbuster late and all the "good stuff" was gone...this movie is so cheesy, it's hysterical! It's one of those cool "laugh out loud" and "don't have to think while watching it" movies.
Key scenes to look for: Billy Mac robbing the store, Billy Mac and the fork, Billy Mac and the tattoo, and Peter Fonda's cameo (or whatever his role is) in the movie.
I heard it was something of a rip-off of Natural Born Killers but since I never saw that, I don't know, but seeing as how Love and a .45 was made first...chicken or the egg, huh?

You'll probably notice that this film copies Quentin Tarantino's style but still (or maybe, right because of this), it's an excellent choice. It's some sort of post-modern drama (which often tinges with comedy tough) set in the southern part of the US. It's a mixture of Bonnie & Clyde, Fear and loathing in Las Vegas (drugs pop up throughout) and Pulp Fiction, all in one, shot by some kind of madman...
