Dorothy doesn't want to go to jail and Petula comes up with a plan to dispose of the body. Before that happens, Dorothy's dog bites off Brian's finger and she decides to demand ransom with Petula's help. The simple self-defense accident spirals out of control.
It tries to be a hip brash black comedy. Unlike other British crime dramas of that era, this doesn't have quite the same energy or cool style as Guy Ritchie. It's not funny enough. It has a bit of blood and violence but can't compete against anything from Tarantino. It doesn't have anything outstanding other than Lynch and Weisz. These are great actresses but there isn't enough to push this movie over the top.
