It's 1983, and hopeless junkie Dick gets an unwelcome visit from the past - his seriously sleazy former cellmate, Bug, to be precise.

Why do we even need this fancy prick?
We have been through this. If Donnie goes in, it looks like he has two days to live. No offense. You or I go in, it's like panic city.

My 314th Review: One of the better crime comedies around
This is low down fun. It has a very well-scripted, plotted, and thought through feel to it and there really are worse ways to send your time.
It reminded us a lot of Australian cinema, where losers just keep on losing but just more and more outrageously, and it is a film that makes you laugh mostly 'cos it ain't you.
All the characters are exactly that, characters, and all of them are nicely done. Everything from the get go just works and the take on the 80s is pitch perfect - no Reaganomics and Wall Street here, this is 70s hangover time to perfection.
A fun little movie with heart, drugs, and great, great incompetence...
