Storyline

Several jeweller's shops in L.A. are robbed, altogether diamonds worth 60 million dollars are gone. The police investigations don't lead to any success, although they suspect mobster Malta behind it. The insurance company hires the minor criminals Ellen and Charley to steal back the diamonds. They have success, but decide that $50,000 aren't enough reward. So they try to make a better deal - with any party. Will the self-assured Ellen and her brother be able to deal with two mob parties on one side, and a clever detective with romantic intentions on the other?

Traci--Sullen or Bored? You Decide.
25 May 1999 | by Stevej-4See all my reviews

I always enjoy laughing at the work of former porn stars trying to be "legitimate" actresses. Traci has, happily, given that up and now concentrates on being a hack. But this little gem is truly amusing in it's awfulness. Traci's facial expression throughout this film is indecipherable and unchanging and absolutely lifeless. Perhaps she thought the title referred to her emotional range. But the plot is where the real fun is. What character development! Classic gunfighting scenes with patented Nev-R-Empty magazines! The bad guys couldn't hit the Titanic. The good guys (who've never fired a guy before)can hit a two-inch target on a moving car. My favorite scene involves Traci acquiring an arsenal to pursue her vengeance. The weapons so lovingly spotlighted never appear again in the film. And, of course, the pivotal plot point depends on the concept that pretty much anybody knows how to fly a helicopter. And, since Traci was being a "legitimate" actress, there's not even a hint of skin to brighten the picture. Good lord, this is awful. MST3K needs to add this to its list.
