Marv needs money. His unemployed dad is so poor that he makes Marv give up half his last six bucks so they can both go on three-dollar dates; he's just lost his scholarship after getting caught writing a term paper for Betty, the prettiest (and only) girl in his class; and Betty herself has told him he doesn't stand a chance with her unless he can give her what she wants most: money, money, money. But Marv has mob ties and Marv knows where to find a million dollars cash... Written by
At this time, everything just got so redundant in movies as people were just obsessed with making movies about giant leeches, gila monsters, praying mantises and everything in between. It actually was nice to see some variety in B-movies at this time with something completely real. It's still nothing but a B-movie of course. This falls into the trap of just being too boring. I hate it when I have to say that a film being short is one of its biggest pluses. I mean, I certainly didn't want this to be longer! It features a guy in High School who tries to steal a million dollars from heroin dealers or something.
It again makes the mistake of having too much buildup and not much of a payoff. When it all ends, it's mostly pointless and you don't care that everyone's dying left and right. These characters just seem rather dumb in their decisions. It's a downer ending, but not to the point where you get depressed. It falls into too many clichés of a nerd trying to get with a girl who's out of his league and him being bullied. This stuff existed even back then. *1/2
