One husband too many.......
1 April 2008 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Low budget twisty noir with a good cast. Eric Roberts is his usual charming, psycho self. John Litgow plays the sympathetic duped husband, while Madchen Amick plays both husbands against each other. All is not as it seems, and there are at least a bunch of double crosses and back stabbings along the way to an intricate bank robbery. Part inside job, part outside job, the amoral characters try to outsmart each other, as the story twirls toward the unexpected conclusion. "Love, Cheat,& Steal" isn't going to make anyone's top 100 list, but for what it is, it succeeds nicely. If you enjoy fast moving films with quirky dialog, give this one a try. - MERK
