Fun and Fancy Free!
10 October 2003 | by HeartMongerSee all my reviews

Two struggling musicians, both female, and both in bad relationships, are over due in their rent; their music isn't paying them worth a stick; and worst of all, They're POOR! Until their drug dealer leaves them a bag of drug money for them to watch over. They find out what is in the bag, and proceed to spend the money for their own needs. Soon, the greed, wealth, and power becomes too much for them and all hell breaks loose! Intriguing, and very well made. So much more than a movie when one looks at it the right way. A Social commentary of feminism on one level: showing us that woman are just as much to blame for money levels in the U.S. ; also showing that woman are as much in control. A Commentary on being true to yourself on another level: These two characters are lost in the money that they forget what they love most in their lives, and the money becomes all to them. Over all, this is a commentary on the greed; that money sometimes CAN BE the root of all evil. Fun, and wacky comedy has the best actors in the world doing their best to pull of a good script. Helen Slater shines the highest as the main character who can't stand up for herself, Hattie, and Melanie Mayron does just as good as the troubled Lolly. Eileen Brennan and Carol Kane are the sisters in which own the apartment complex that Slater and Mayron live; and they are a hoot! This film is screaming with feminist thoughts but shouldn't hinder a males viewing experience. Nice, and Fun, clever and fancy free! A Good Movie.
