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

Excellent Film
31 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you had a mother like the one in this picture, I would begin to wonder how you ever deserved such a horrible position in Life. It sure is a great comedy and at the same time a drama that keeps you wondering just how things will eventually turn out in the very end. If you go out to dinner, you had better worry about the salt and pepper shakers and all morale codes of conduct are completely disregarded. The picture is a bit drawn out and you begin to wonder just when justice will prevail. This is a true story and you really feel sorry for the poor people involved in this family, but you just have to remember it is only a film, so sit back and enjoy the Comedy in this film.
