Filmed in March 1996 but Jada Pinkett Smith had to leave the film to do Scream 2. Filming of the last scenes were shot in August 1996. See more »
During the initial bank robbery, Darnell is holding a hostage in a headlock. He is to the right of the hostage and facing teller Frankie. He has his revolver pressed against the right temple of the hostage. He fires the gun and in the next scene, the hostage falls to the ground and a gunshot wound can be seen on the left temple of the hostage. The right temple can also be seen, but it is absent of any marks or wounds. See more »
Great Movie. Gripping tale of 4 women who turn to robbing banks to make it out of ghetto life. The 4, played by Jada Pinkett, (Not married to Will Smith at time of filming) Vivica A. Fox, Dana Owens (Better know as Queen Latifa) and newcomer at the time, Kimberly Elise all work legally until they figure that crime will pay them more than honest work. Blair Underwood is excellent as the love interest for Stoney (Pinkett) with his Harvard education mixed with a street knowledge. Pace of the movie is good, and it all flows very well. Excellent movie. Worth renting from Blockbuster.
