badly made

William Elliot aka Billy the Kid (Patrick Dempsey) is a romantic and decides to do one last bank robbery solo for girlfriend Selina (Olivia d'Abo). Security camera captures his picture and he's identified right away. The bank claims his take at $178k, but most of which the bankers are stealing themselves. Billy tries to hide in his Heartbreak Hotel room but his neighbors realize his identity. Everybody starts overcharging him for everything from pizza to drugs despite not ordering any of it. Priscilla (Lisa Bonet) is a friendly hooker. Officers Gross (Judge Reinhold) and Battle (Forest Whitaker) get high. TV reporter Marisa Benoit (Mariska Hargitay) shows up at Billy's door with her crew.

I think writer/director Nick Mead wanted this to be a funny satire of a crime noir. None of it is funny. It also has no tension as a thriller. It looks cheap and badly made. The amazing thing is the number of solid actors in this movie. The writing is simply bad and the filming is amateurish. It's a rambling mess that adds up to nothing.
