Product Description

Clark County, Texas trailer housewife Lorna (Gina Gershon) is fed up with her small-time thief husband Dale (Val Kilmer), especially after he didn't plan on sharing the $100,000 cash he'd robbed at gunpoint from the local savings & loan. But before she and her best friend Tiny (Kelli Giddish of ''Law & Order: Special Victims Unit'') can split the loot and start a new life, they'll have to find the money, dispose of a dead body, distract the nosy sheriff (Ray Liotta) and outsmart a persistent private investigator (Wayne Duvall of O Brother, Where Art Thou?). Richard Riehle (Office Space) co-stars in this pitch-black comedy/thriller about nasty double-crosses, bloody doublewides, and a whole bunch of unexpected twists that will leave you Breathless.

Excellent movie; it's funny and entertaining- Val Kilmer and Ray Liotta are good in the film and are a couple of names to draw people in (though Kilmer is in it very little- even though the plot revolves around him figuratively and literally). But the stars of the movie are definitely Kelli Giddish and Gina Gershon, the actresses played well off each other and they reminded me of "I Love Lucy" episodes with their back and forth bickering and scheming about the mess they are in.

I would recommend this movie for purchase; it's a movie that even though you know what's going to happen after watching it once, it's still entertaining to watch.

I enjoyed the opening credits with bright use of the color red and showing the painted hands of a women preparing dinner. Gina Gershon stars as Lorna in this dark comedy that takes place in Texas in 1981. Dale (Val Kilmer) her husband of 17 years, is laid out on the floor as Gina's girlfriend Tiny (Kelli Giddish looking like a young Jane Curtin) walks in.

As things go on Val Kilmer, who is now tied up in a chair and has confessed to a bank robbery, is accidentally killed. The women suppose the money is hidden somewhere in the trailer. They decide to look for the loot and dispose of the body using household appliances. As the story goes on, the plot takes a number of twists, so much so that the final twist becomes easy to figure out.

This is a Coen style comedy, but falls short of the masters. I enjoyed this quirky film in spite of some of the predictability. Several laugh out loud moments as Gina creates a memorable character.

A great film that's bloody, over the top, full of punchy dialogue, unexpected twists/turns, and a great model for low budget filmmaking. Why? Ignore having stars like Gina Gershon (in usual top form), Kelli Giddish (L&O: SVU star), Val Kilmer and Ray Liotta, they made this in a single setting and its immediate surroundings. The low budget indie sci-fi classic "Primer" is another example where you can learn from those who've successfully made a film set in a limited number of physical locations to keep costs down.

In this case a house trailer in the middle of nowhere and a few cars are all it takes to tell the tale of a women (Gershon) and her best friend (Giddish) trying to figure out whether husband Val Kilmer indeed committed a bank robbery (netting $100,000), if so where he hid the money and avoiding the threat of the local sheriff awaiting a search warrant outside (Liotta).

If you have allergies/asthma or just quit smoking you might want to rethink watching this as the two ladies smoke nearly non-stop the entire film. Sort of a 40s/50s vibe though it's not set in that time period. And if you're squeamish note there's a lot of blood in this one as the insanity increases as the women start to tear the small trailer apart searching for money. Give it a try and just enjoy the nutty, bloody fun and games.

A little gross but in a comical way. Not for kids! Really unexpectedly enjoyed this fast-paced and unusual movie. Ray Liotta is the reason I purchased it. As usual, he is sexy and in this movie plays a "cool laid-back cat". I just wish Liotta had a bigger part in the movie because I can't get enough of him! Ha!

Gershon's delivery of this character makes the movie for me. And it's overall well cast as well. I laughed out loud more than once. But be prepared. The humor is dry, and dark. It's not one of your standard-slapstick-over-the-top-crude-the-Hangover type movies. It's classy.

"We are in Texas there are no accidents. There's alive and there's dead." Lorna (Gershon) is very upset with her husband Dale (Kilmer) after years of prison for robbing convenience stores he is free. She finds out that he has robbed a bank and she is upset because he isn't sharing with her. She calls her friend "Tiny" (Giddish) over to help her though her problem but things go from bad to worse. I have to say that for the most part this was a pretty entertaining movie and it made me laugh a few times but it is not anything really good. The humor is the "redneck" type of humor like the kind in "Raising Arizona" but it's not quite as funny. I've said for a while now that Val Kilmer has really gone downhill for some reason. While this is his best (and by that I mean only watchable) movie in a while his acting is terrible. Ray Liotta has been going down that road too but his acting is actually decent in this movie. This is nothing amazing but it is pretty funny in a very dark & I shouldn't be laughing at this kind of way. Overall, not a bad way to spend an hour and a half. I give it a B-.

This film works like a play.
Really no scenes as much as all the dialogue taking place in a trailer.

It felt like a character study exercise for actors more than an actual film.
With the main characters doing a great job with their acting and continuous dialogue.

The opening sequence was a full rip-off of the opening credits for the TV show DEXTER.

Bottom line -- impressive acting talents and character portrayals , but not really an enjoyable or interesting movie.

P.S.
What happened to Val Kilmer ?
Years ago he was poised to be the next big thing, then he suddenly kind of just faded away.

I think I will go look that up now that I am curious.
