Two best girlfriends living in London suddenly find themselves battling wits with seasoned criminals when they decide to blackmail the culprits of a bank heist in their neighborhood rather than reporting the crime to the police. Refusing to be played by this new competition and give up the demanded $2 million, the leaders of the gang of robbers (Kevin McNally and Michael Gambon) decide to start playing dirty tricks, threaten violence and counterfeit money in an effort to throw the two women (played by Minnie Driver and Mary McCormack) off course. When the blackmail and counter attacks hurt an innocent bystander, the kooky best friends must use their friendship to empower each other to lure the hardened criminals into a risky trap. Written by
This film, like most of the others I really like, is for enjoyment only. It has an absurd plot, people do unlikely things and everything magically turns out right, shuffling off to the side nasty details of some sub-plots. But is a real hoot. I have not laughed this much at a movie in a long time.
If you are weary of teen flicks loaded with sophmoric bodily function humor and you really dug "A Fish Named Wanda", this movie is a MUST for you!!!
