Storyline

Two teens impulsively decide to rob a bank, a la Bonnie and Clyde. Quickly they find themselves in over their heads as they are forced to take a bank full of hostages and the FBI are at the door. Hostages include a heroin addicted Gulf War vet, the pesky bank manager, a gruff old man, a calm bank employee, and a helpful young woman. The head FBI man must sort through the psychology of all the participants to try to keep the events from escalating. Underlying in all of this is the pure adolescence of the two who initiate the trouble. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Pups came as somewhat of something that I was familiar to- after seeing Bonnie and Clyde, Mad City, Natural Born Killers. Because, 5the film is mostly about making points, big or small. The film is centered on two youths (reminding me of my old friends, oddly enough, but no not completely) who get a sudden impulse after stealing a gun to hold a bank hostage and then having the usual cops and FBI standing outside. Nothing new, and often when the kids try and make a message (at one point the girl tries to say that anybody would take stolen money by throwing a bunch to bystanders) it might not be always the greatest, however... the performances by these two kids (Cameron Van Hoy and Mischa Barton) with all the intensity of Al Pacino, Leatherface and Sam Kinison combined, they turn this film into an absolute powerhouse with a surprisingly surprising ending. Kurt Loder appears in a almost gag cameo and Burt Reynolds plays the coolheaded (sometimes) negotiator. A
