Customer Reviews

This was a really bad movie.
Lucy Ackerman
This is without a doubt one of the best movies I have ever seen, and I've seen it over and over.
Keel
And contrary to what many say I found the level of violence high but not excessive.

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.

I'll admit that I own "Love and a .45" mainly because I'm a HUGE fan of Renee Zellweger and worship the ground she walks on. Not only is she beautiful but she has talent, and she proves that yet again in this "running-from-the-law" flick. She also proves that she can take on any type of role and be great in it, and her role in this movie almost takes a 180-degree turn from her typical roles in other movies.
But Renee isn't the only reason to own this movie. I was equally impressed with the performances of all the other actors. Some scenes, especially the violent ones, are somewhat over-the-top, but then again that's what makes this movie so fun to watch. And contrary to what many say I found the level of violence high but not excessive. This isn't only a "shoot 'em up" pointless movie; there's more than just stage blood.
As for the DVD itself, bonus features are adequate but not overwhelming. I'm not too crazy about the letterbox format but at least the image and sound quality are good. All in all, a great movie for the fan of the "Pulp Fiction" style, or anyone who wants to see Renee Zellweger as a "bad girl." And get the soundtrack too!

Format: DVD
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.

THIS is one of my MUST HAVE dvd's! The flick was first spotted on IFC channel and I WAS PROMPTLY DRAWN IN to the energy of this Indie jewel! If you enjoy believable action and complete realism, or if you've ever been down a Texas highway, view this gem! If you get into any ONE of the following, then this is your next movie...: Hot Pants, sex, drugs, Rock & Roll, pistols, law-gone-bad coppers, graphic violence, Texas twangs, Peter Fonda portraying a hippie or white girls seducing Mexican border guards. Now myself, Well, I love MY .45 so I dug the movie! Quintin T is no groundbreaker...this flick was his reference I'm betting...

Format: VHS Tape
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!
