Unoriginal but honest little offering.
16 June 2002 | by (Longmont: Colorado US) – See all my reviews

Needles is Mr "every crim"...doesn't even have a name. Loser of a small-time thief who makes the dubious acquaintance of shoplifter Miss Jones, who also carries no name. He had actually planned on stealing her car just as a matter of record.

The two socially outcast losers hit it off and embark on a short term spree much along the lines of a "no frills" Bonnie and Clyde!

Ultimately purposeless little flick but not too badly acted I have to admit. Way better than the recent IMPOSTER at least!
