Goofs

When Sid is shot and Bob is helping to bind the wound, they both begin to tie off below the wound, instead of above it (between the wound and the heart, in order to constrict blood flow). When we next see Sid's leg, the wound is bound correctly, above the wound. See more »

Trivial nonsense.....
20 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two used car lot owners, who we know nothing about, get involved with numerous shady characters, who we know nothing about, while being paid to watch a Pontiac convertible, which we know nothing about. Why would anyone be interested in a movie that explains nothing, and has zero character development? The obvious answer is you wouldn't. Throw in unending closeups of meaningless dialog, a "surprise" ending that is so ridiculous, it will leave you wondering if it didn't come from a different film, and other trivial nonsense that does nothing to explain this confused mess. Forget even considering seeing B.G.B. & O, instead seek out "Suckers", another low budget crime drama centering around a used car operation, that is absolutely brilliant. - MERK
