Decent Saturday afternoon entertainment!
25 February 2005 | by (Marlow, England) – See all my reviews

Those who have the old sky movies will have stumbled on a film of this nature at some point. An unsuccessful, middle of the road, piece of light entertainment from years back. Perhaps a lesser known film in a once big stars career. This film is one such film. It is simple entertainment and not in the least bit testing. Corey Haim, a one time box office dynamo like fellow Corey, Mr Feldman, was at this point growing old. He was at an age where we could no longer forgive his annoyances because of his youth, he was just plain annoying and audiences didn't watch his films. Soon after this film Haim, like Feldman (who in fact had far more acting talent than Haim) dropped into DTV obscurity. I remember watching another film of Haims; License To Drive which was more of a success yet the same simple formula of light hearted comical hi-jinks. Fast Getaway is worth a watch.

Co-starring is the pocket rocket herself, the queen of action, Cynthia Rothrock. This was the biggest film to date in her career and could have been a break through in her career, but the film flopped, so it wasn't. However from her showing in this Rothrock doesn't look out of place in a more substantially budgeted film than her DTV chop-socky flicks. Rothrock plays a real horny dynamo of a woman who by the end of the film severely beats the hell out of all her male co-stars. What we learn is two things: 1): She could kick their buts easily in real life, and 2): I would love her to kick the crap out of me! Rothrock is sexy, no doubt and the Haim and Leo Rossi (His father in the film) even discuss the plumpness and roundness of her boobies which in a strange way is almost in a way a conversation with the male audience as well! The film is about a bank robbing father and son team, who break away from their other two partners, after a ruck, including Lilly (Rothrock). Lilly was going out with Sam (Nelsons father) and when she wanted to cut out the young and annoying Nelson, Sam didn't like it. So what we have is a long seen where Cynthia absolutely kicks the living be-Jesus out of Leo Rossi who actually looked like he was taking a few hard shots there. Lilly with her incredibly vivacious sex drive disbands with the idiot Tony who revels in being her sex toy (lucky SOB!). They are soon rivals and of course the two groups face off down the line.

The film is funny. It's not laugh a minute, bawl out loud stuff and that's a reason it didn't do good business. However there's chemistry between Haim and Rossy and some decent dramatic moments. There's a fair bit of teenage angst compared to other films of this genre however they are not greatly handled because director Spiro Sparatozozoazoozoa or whatever his name is is actually a stunt co-ordinator by trade. His direction is incompetent but he pulls off some neat car chases throughout the movie. Haim is for the most part actually quite likable despite the hyperactivity, awful hair and fashion, but in truth if you've put up with modern teen stars in their films theses days, the likes of Feldman and Haim make a refreshing and far more likable change. This is basic teen-comedy fare that is a darn sight more enjoyable than recent big budget pap. At least I didn't finish wanting to insert a fork into my eye ball! **1/2
