The Bonnie & Clyde story is re-told from a contemporary viewpoint. Clyde in this movie is a high school nerd working in the local burger joint. Urges to steal things are inflamed when he runs into Bonnie, the bored daughter of the local police commissioner, who is running with a street gang led by Kirk. Clyde immediately senses a kindred spirit in Bonnie. Initially she ignores him, but he rescues her from a shop-lifting charge and offers her a ride in a stolen van. Soon the two have taken guns from her father's home and go off on a bloody crime spree... Written by

At the beginning when Clyde is closing up the burger joint two teenagers try to leave but are locked in. The boy is Pat King. This was filmed in Salt Lake City and his parents rented a trailer to the production crew. They needed cheap extras and so he got paid ten dollars. See more »
I was surprised that I found myself watching this entire movie. I expected utter nonsense, which I did get sometimes, but it was entertaining nonetheless. Perfect for an easy afternoon movie.
Basically, it is a modern takeoff of the old Bonnie and Clyde movie. This time around it's teenagers, and Bonnie's Dad is Chief of Police. Cliché, yes. But the actors do a great job. You find yourself routing for these two to make it, and I won't say whether or not this time around the ending was changed. I will say this movie had a totally different feel than its predecessor.
All in all, worth a look. Don't expect an Oscar-winning film, and you won't be disappointed.
