This woman is so dingy in this film she irked me from the get-go. First of all the unwanted suitor just met her in the park where she was sitting - he wasn't a stalker, he was a man that just met her and trying to come on to her. Secondly, she steals a car to get away from said suitor and she's to dingy to realize that stealing a car makes her a thief and the cops will go after the stolen car. Third, she picks up a man she doesn't know long her way to really nowhere while getting away from the suitor. This man sees the dead body in the back of the car and we are now in for some lame comedy as the police are hot of the trail of the real criminals and a stolen car.
I found this one a bore fest - trying to hard to be funny with a boring story to follow. I did not find anyone "cute" in this film just ewe.
I got this film in the Dark Crimes 50-Film Pack and this is NOT a dark crime. It's a (so-called) comedy crime film - nothing that dark about it except riding around in a stolen car with a dead body. It's not film noir or anything close to that.
