Storyline

Anita is a high-school girl who frequently allows random boys and men to have sex with her, and is frequently raped by her absentee mother's boyfriend. As part of a school assignment Anita takes up correspondence with a lonely young prison inmate, whose letters stir up dormant desires for violence and guns. After buying herself a firearm, Anita convinces her mother's boyfriend to teach her how to use it, and, after he rapes her again, shoots him to death and hides the body. She then sets about getting her new "boyfriend" out of jail and to her, where she slowly drags him with her on her downward spiral of sex, violence, and murder for the sake of murder.

A 15 pound turkey would take anywhere from 12 to 18 hours to cook, depending on temperature, thereby the turkey dinner they were eating would have to be have been either prepared ahead of time or they would be eating it at a later date. See more »

Worst Bonnie & Clyde ripoff ever
26 July 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Drew Barrymore stars as a teenager who is left with mom's boyfriend (Joe Dalessandro) as she goes off to Fresno. He, and everybody else in town, is sexually abusing her. She hooks up with a pen pal from Chino (James LeGros), who like Clyde barrow just can't get it up. He can't do much else either as he is the worst thief I have ever seen.

She loves shooting guns, but isn't much of a thief either, giving a guys money back after he gives her a sob story about paying the rent.

Ione Sky plays her best friend, Joy, and does a good job. I always enjoy her and like to see more.

Too bad there was little action, and lousy dialog.
