tries to be hip black comedy crime drama
22 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Dorothy (Susan Lynch) is out to the movies when she encounters Petula (Rachel Weisz) being abused by her boyfriend Brian McMinn. Dorothy is dealing with her own unstable boyfriend Tony. She knocks out Brian and the girls bring him back to Dorothy's flat. The women become fast friends. He wakes up and falls down killing himself. 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.
