Did You Know?

Goofs

(at around 30 mins) Christian Slater pulls the trigger on his gun, but it only goes click. Semi-automatics are designed so the slide (top part of the gun) stays locked in the rearward position when empty. This condition would have alerted him that he was already out of bullets before bothering to shoot. See more »

Quotes

Hendricks: The guy who sold it to them said they had a couple suitcases. Got on the freeway headed east. It's a bright orange '57 Chevy.
Pollen: A bright orange '57 Chevy? We'll never find them now.

true romance
1 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every once in a blue moon a straight to DVD movie has the power to take me out of a drunken stooper and sober me up. This is one of those films. Flying onto DVD under the radar and under the recommendation from many customers I decided to check this little gem out. The cover art is pretty generic photoshop and unappealing. And the casting of Christian Slater doesn't bode too well however kick ass Jenna Dewan of Step Up and Tamara and sexy Brian Geraghty in full on hunk mode does add a bit of intrigue. Despite them I still decided to avoid it at first. Boy I'm glad I checked this movie out. A down on their luck good natured young couple come upon a bag full of dirty cop money. They flee with it and find themselves on the run from corrupt cops dealing with one bad turn after the next. Christian Slater is actually quite menacing as the films villain but the real treasures here are Dewan and Geraghty. Their chemistry is realistic and relatable. The movie falls into a True Romance type category and borrows heavily from that film and all those other Bonnie and Clyde type films like it. But the characters are very well drawn in this version and you really care about themPlus the performances are top notch and they are very likable. Here are two actors in desperate need of a deserving career. Both sexy and talented. I really wish this film would have been given a chance it's much better than most released in theatres and is actually professionally made with a clean gritty look to it. It's a shame that such a good film would be passed over because of lack of star power. But trust me it's worth a look. It's a prime hot rental at my job and from everyone whose renting it. it's getting really good word of mouth. Hopefully that will give some credit to the talented people involved.

***.5/5
