Not an homage to the sixties, this is the real thing!
21 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

A female Mafia courier attempts to retire but is double-crossed by her boyfriend and she ends up having to dodge a hitman. The boyfriend gets his second girlfriend involved by stashing his first girlfriend's money in her apartment. This is a fast moving and fun movie in the best and trashiest Saturday afternoon matinee way. While Quentin Taratino makes homages to sixties pop culture, this film embraces and lives it. Tonya Harding plays the second girlfriend Gina with freshness, zest, and sex appeal. Tonya Harding steals every scene.
