Much better than the title suggests.
14 January 2016 | by (whakamaru) – See all my reviews

But what would be a better one? Sorry, I don't do titles. The highlight for me is seeing the depth of talent, from all these little known actors. They all do a really good job, and does the director and camera people.

The story is straightforward, mostly. Three young men in a tiny go-nowhere town, not much to do. One is having a problem with his girl Alysha (not the girl of the title) He decides he needs to leave town, so gets a couple of mates. They decide to get some money off people who are gambling and who expect to lose money. So... they go in the back door, burst onto the stage, and then find themselves in the Senior Citizens Bingo tournament. Total proceeds, $512.

Then they leave town. The oldies ring the cops of course, but the sheriff is out of town, so this is the deputy's big chance to actually solve something. "Did they all have guns" he asks an old person. "Who?" she replies. That's just one of many great little gags that come throughout.

The deputy figures that the kids will go away by the Old Pass road, and he's right. The old car breaks down. So the kids hijack the Caddy of Dave and Hope (the girl). There is confrontation and drama when they go to the abandoned farm. One says "I don't want a girlfriend" after Hope turns the tables on them - she gets the gun AND the Cadillac!

Eventually the cops come and the kids are caught, taken to the Honor Farm. Then, the final scene is back at the bingo hall where the guys are now required to help out. "I'd rather be at the Honor Farm" says one.
