Storyline

Butler is an experienced car thief, McCoy a struggling reporter trying to nail a bad guy-senator. Meeting for the first time when they're both in dire need of air transportation, they team up long enough for Butler to steal a car with a very special piece of luggage in the trunk, and all hell breaks loose. Suddenly they're chased by both sides of the law, and who can tell which is which? Written by Lars Skogan <si2_ls92362@debet.nhh.no>

Great action, ok movie
17 June 2000 | by (The Hague, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Fast Money is a great action movie with a mediocre script but great action scenes. If you're into car chases, big explosions, gunfights and explosive women, this is the movie to watch on a summer's night.

Beautiful and highly strung Yancy Butler steals the show as a professional car thief, when she inadvertently bumps into straight laced Matt McCoy's investigative reporter. When "going to get a car" (i.e., stealing one), she happens to break into the wheels of Trevor Goddard's Regy, a violent criminal in the employ of a developer who wants to finance his enterprise with counterfeit money. With a stupidity only matched by his violence, Regy leaves both two false plates and 2,7 million dollars lying in his car, and guess what, Yancy Butler's Francesca (Frank) has the bonus of her lifetime. They get pursued by both Regy and John Ashton's corrupt cop, Lt. Diego. Ashton (Taggert in Beverly Hills I & II) and Goddard make a fine comical pair of crooks. Always nice to see how the bad guys are getting more dialogue after Pulp Fiction.

In all, this is not a great movie, the script can be clunky, but the action is hot, and since Drop Zone, I admit to being a die hard Yancy Butler fan.

Don't hold your expectations too high, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
