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.
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.
PARENTAL GUIDE: No F-bombs, sex, or nudity.
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.
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.
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.

What a great movie with an exceptional sound track. Dark, but comedic, and all of it taking place in a one-room setting, more or less. Read morePublished on January 13, 2013 by Paul Evans Pedersen, Jr.
