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

Sherry Jackson at her evil best!
28 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this movie for Sherry Jackson alone. Her performance here as a villain is superb. She steals every scene she is in. Thin plot about some vandals loot being stashed in a classic Corvette. When the unsuspecting new owners drive off in the car the chase is on. Sherry has some classic camp lines: Lighting up a cigarette in an elevator dressed as a nun, she tells a portly man "You got a problem fatso"?? Later in a biker bar, she pours a drink down a man's pants and then sets his crotch on fire! Sherry should have been a huge star in the 70's, she was gorgeous, could play tough or innocent and had tons of charisma! She even drives an EARTHMOVER in this flick. Supporting actors are good but this is Sherry's movie all the way. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
