Product Description

(Thriller) Ashley and Taylor are manipulative career drifters always on the make for lonely housewives. But their easy lifestyle hits a roadblock when Taylor romances April, the daughter of one of the wives. After he announces that she is joining them on the road, things quickly take a turn for the worse.

Amazon.com

Midnight Cowboy meets Drugstore Cowboy in this frowzy cruise through the underclass. Childhood buddies David Arquette and Balthazar Getty are scam artists roaming from place to place; they land in a ritzy Connecticut town where the housewives appear ripe for plucking. Getty makes the mistake of genuinely liking one target (Julianna Margulies) and then falling for her smart, rebellious daughter (Thora Birch)--all of which not only messes up their con-artist plans but also brings Arquette's homoerotic jealousies to the forefront. The laidback storytelling style appears to be a deliberate decision on the part of director Jay Alaimo, who somewhat miscalculates the appeal of such a strategy; he also overestimates the charisma of Getty and Arquette. They are easily topped by the offbeat collection of actresses in the film, including Margulies (who does tasty Mrs. Robinson-style work until the film eases her out), Joely Fisher (as Margulies' bored friend), and American Beauty's Birch, who brings a steady, sharp skepticism to her role. None of this can end well, but Slingshot can't find an original way to make its downward spiral compelling, and by that time the momentum implied by its title has fizzled away. --Robert Horton

A wonderfully filmed production of a deep friendship between two men and their eventual separation with excellent acting - Birch, Getty, Arquette, and Margulies. Scenes were unique - both humorous and poignant.

I heard about this movie and I am so glad i bought it. The first 10 minutes truely set the pace of this movie with its smartly written dark humor. An intersting cast that is cleverly pulled together into a thoughtful film. David arquette shines as a true actor under the good direction of Jay Alaimo...

A good "coming of age" type film here with hints of The Graduate and American Beauty. The acting and direction are enough to keep you interested despite the somewhat hollow storyline.

Surprisingly bad performances by actors I previously thought better of. The plot could have been decent but all characters were unrealistic, over-the-top caricatures of stereotypes. Seriously. The dialog was also truly amiss. Overall, I really haven't seen a film as bad as this--and I've been streaming pretty bad free movies lately. This one I actually rented! I would only recommend this film to my worst enemies.

This whole movie is someone's daydream that should have never been put on tape. Any amateur could have done a video of this quality. The producers should be sued for the time wasted to watch this garbage. There is no redeeming moment in this video. DVD is already in the garbage. I would not insult my friends by passing this on to them.
