Directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski. Starring Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon, and Joe Pantoliano.
Meh. Crime movies are always a tough sell for me, and this didn't quite cut it. Despite some interesting characters, I really only cared about what they were doing at the beginning and end, where the crime part of the plot wasn't really present. Everything in between was fairly uninteresting to me. I've enjoyed the Wachowskis' later efforts quite a bit, between the Matrix movies and Cloud Atlas, so this was a bit of a disappointment. 2 stars.
Flickchart: #1394 out of 2025, below Take Me Out to the Ball Game and above Courage Under Fire.
