At the range, Rosie fires nine rounds from a revolver without reloading. While a very few revolvers hold more than six rounds, this one does not, as can be seen in the front view of the cylinder. See more »

User Reviews

Hilariously kinky adventures of trashy orphan girls.

This film, alternately side-splittingly funny and stunningly bizarre,is destined to become a cult classic. It's difficult to decide if the filmmakers were wanting to make a seriocomic social commentary or just indulging a penchant for the outlandish. Either way, this is a movie that must truly be seen to be believed. After two viewings I can't really say whether I like it or dislike it, but I can certainly recommend it to viewers as a film unlike any other. Besides, if it airs on The IFC, it's got have something going for it, right?
