Errors in geography: The trio crosses into Mexico (heading for Acuna) at a land crossing (one guard, small guard shack with a drop arm barrier across the road). All crossings between Del Rio, Texas and Acuna, Mexico have to cross the Rio Grande River at a bridge. In addition, all U.S.-Mexico border crossings have both U.S. and Mexican border patrol guards.See more »

Fun film!, 21 May 2000
Author: mwf-5 from Michigan

Great for fans of the crime-on-the-run films. . . funny and unique twist on the genre with great characters and some very, very funny moments.

Similar to Tarantino, and miles above Stone's horrible Natural Born Killers, Love and a .45 is a delight.
