What did I just watch?
11 December 2000 | by trayhpSee all my reviews

I don't understand why this movie was made. There was a good idea there. Two down and out female musicians end up with $900,000 in drug money accidentally. They go on a shopping spree but plan to pay it all back. When it comes time to return the money, they can't pay it back, and the stories turn into a chase, where the bag becomes lost numerous times. It was awful.

I reached a point where one of the characters was running across the street and almost got hit by two cars. I wanted her to get hit by the cars. There was a sub-plot with some other lady in the apartment complex and a parking lot attendant that did not make any sense.

Another point. I strongly hate movies that blatantly explain where the title comes from. The drug dealer states to the two females about her bag of money, "And keep your sticky fingers out of it!" I recommend WHAT'S UP DOC? a better film about bags that get lost.
