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).Read more ›
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!
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?
