Wow - What a stinker! This ridiculous excuse for a bio-pic is even worse than most Lifetime movies (who helped produce this piece of crap).
Even forgetting the landmark Warren Beatty/Faye Dunaway classic (hard to do - but it can be done lol)... this mini-series has two horrible leads (and co-stars that seem as though they have no clue what is going on), a psychic Clyde, events that not only never happened but are inplausable in the extreme, meandering and boring scenes (this could have easily been a 90 minute movie as is) and has a vibe of a ultra low budget direct to video production.
In true Lifetime style, they even re-write Bonnie as the brains behind the robbing and killing... when in real life it was Clyde who took terrible advantage of this Texas waitress. I also "love" how they've painted Clyde into this hunky dream boat love maker when by all accounts it was his male companions that got most of his attention back in the day... sigh.
Not even interested in Part Two... what a waste.
