Storyline

Lonigan and his partner Tony, two drug dealers, shoot two cops who attempt to set them up, and run away with a million bucks and the drugs, which they stash in a red Corvette Stingray in a used car lot. When they attempt to recover their stash with their leader, Abigail, they find out that two happy-go-lucky dudes, Elmo and Al, have bought the car. They quickly pursue the two along with the police who think that the car's new owners are the criminals. Written by filmfactsman

Needs to be on DVD
11 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

The previous poster succinctly and successfully described the plot of a movie that is what show business should be today. The one liners from "icy calm" Lonnigan are priceless and the driving is superb. Jerry Taylor, the director, did it right when he put the long Stingray chase scene to the beat of the unknown country song "Hi Gear" sung by Gerry Riopelle. "We won't be slowing down because we're driving these wheels into the ground" This film is a must see and should be stored on DVD!!!!
