Storyline

It's 1983 Los Angeles - beautiful girls, luxurious mansions, glamorous parties and Eddie Dodson, a very hip, very charismatic dealer of high-end antique furniture for the rich and famous. When Eddie meets the cool and aloof Pauline, the attraction is instant and the two live out each other's fast-paced fantasies. That is until Eddie's high-rolling life catches up with him and loan sharks start knocking on his door. To pay off his debts, Eddie and Pauline begin a spree of bank robberies across LA, charming tellers at over 60 banks to hand over the cash. Now the lovers are not only on the run from loan sharks but also have the police hot on their trail. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Eddie Dodson was a Hollywood playboy who robbed 64 banks between July, 1983 and February, 1984 - including six on one day. He served almost 10 years in prison, got out and after a few months was offered a job as a housesitter by Jack Nicholson. Jack sent Eddie to drug treatment twice but on Eddie's third relapse, he lost his position. Two weeks thereafter Eddie got off parole. Two weeks after that he started robbing banks again. He robbed eight more (Eddie said nine, the FBI says eight) before getting arrested again. This time he got a sentence of 46 months, owing in part to a failing liver. He served 40 months, got out in October of 2002, and died in February of 2003 of liver failure. See more »

Slow, bland and boring.
6 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie went too slow for the pace I'm use to.

And for a movie about a bank robber, it was boring.

Seem they relied too much on how viewers wood react to the excitement of robbing a bank vs putting it on screen.

The nostalgia of the 1980s was faint to. They tired with the 80s music but overall I was disinterested.

Jim Struggs was actually pretty good though. Found him funny and enjoyable to watch as a furtive store owner looking to pay back a shark loan by robbing banks. Unfortunately, it's not enough to make the movie and neither was the mostly cameo appearance of Patricia Arquette, who the ad people decided to milked her academy award win to promote the movie and Chloë Sevigny.

I'd skip it
