Surprisingly smart Franco fare. Actually hilarious
24 April 2003 | by (London UK) – See all my reviews

When a couple of over-the-hill and down-on-their-luck female private eyes stumble from an art smuggling caper into a kidnap & murder plot, they throw caution (and common sense) to the wind and try to turn a profit instead of solving the crime. Lina Romay is absolutely hilarious as one of the crooked gumshoes. Christy Levin is the pretty member of the duo and she plays the dumb-as-a-doorknob angle just right against Romay's crafty bobo. As with a lot of Franco's recent films, there's a bit of nudity (too much nudity in some cases) but that shouldn't deter you from enjoying the film. It's a One Shot Productions film and that usually means that someone was keeping an eye on Franco to make sure he paid attention to detail and that's a good thing. Even better, One Shot doesn't stop Franco when he wants to go overboard, so when Levin wants to distract a potential witness by showing him she's "number one," you get to see it all in very disturbing detail.

Call now? Yes, Call now! It's a joke. Watch the film and you'll get it.
