Storyline

Sante Kimes found a rich man, Ken, but he wasn't dumb enough to marry her. So her son Kenny Jr. isn't co-heir with his step-siblings. However the boy is made her accomplice in an endless series of shameless crimes, from shoplifting to elaborate scams. After her four year jail term, Kenny is unable to escape her clasp again. When his father dies, he's dragged along throughout the US as an 'enforcer' for even more daring crimes, as she's determined to avoid jail - by murdering dangerous witnesses. Written by KGF Vissers

She's Bad to the Bone!
2 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was really good. It's the best movie ever made about this case. I'm gonna read the book that it's based on. Great acting, costumes, production, set decoration, directing, photography, script, and portrayal of this real story and events.

Spoilers Coming Up!

Sante' Kimes was a spoiled brat who did whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted, hurt other people without a care in the world for their well being and best interest. She enslaved women and beat them with hot irons and other things. That's what sent her to prison with a five year sentence, (she only served three). But she didn't learn anything from it, because she began her felonious behavior again the minute she was released. She also lured her son Kenny in with her.

The Kimes most certainly are guilty of killing Irene Silvermen and the two men. They can deny it all they want, but everyone else knows the truth. The book that the maid gave Kenny with the story "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" would have been good for Kenny, and I think things would have been different for him if he had been able to keep that book. She could also have used that story herself.

I hope Sante and Kenny Kimes both have lives filled with misery. They should have been given the death penalty. Rot in prison both of you, ha-ha.

I give this movie an 8/10 star rating.
