"Raising Arizona" type humor but the movie isn't as funny. A movie you laugh at even though you know you shouldn't. I say B-
12 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"We are in Texas there are no accidents. There's alive and there's dead." Lorna (Gershon) is very upset with her husband Dale (Kilmer) after years of prison for robbing convenience stores he is free. She finds out that he has robbed a bank and she is upset because he isn't sharing with her. She calls her friend "Tiny" (Giddish) over to help her though her problem but things go from bad to worse. I have to say that for the most part this was a pretty entertaining movie and it made me laugh a few times but it is not anything really good. The humor is the "redneck" type of humor like the kind in "Raising Arizona" but it's not quite as funny. I've said for a while now that Val Kilmer has really gone downhill for some reason. While this is his best (and by that I mean only watchable) movie in a while his acting is terrible. Ray Liotta has been going down that road too but his acting is actually decent in this movie. This is nothing amazing but it is pretty funny in a very dark & I shouldn't be laughing at this kind of way. Overall, not a bad way to spend an hour and a half. I give it a B-.
