John came to Hollywood to get that one big break in life. Years have passed since and all he has to show for are a menial job, unpaid bills and airhead friends and he's getting sick of it all. Is there a way out of this downward spiral?

What would happen if "Natural Born Killers" were made with a brain and a heart?
Hard to believe that this essentially came out simultaneously with Pulp Fiction and Natural Born Killers, since it shares so much with them it's eerie.
This movie is very much Natural Born Killers made with heart, soul and intelligence and with elements of Pulp Fiction mixed in. I personally intensely disliked Natural Born Killers. Supposedly it was making some big statements about society, but it was really just an excuse for a lot of completely pointless and excessive violence committed by totally unlikeable characters.
Unexpectedly, I actually liked this film more than Pulp fiction. It was obviously made with a much lower budget, which in this case gave the movie character and charm.
There is quite a bit of jarring violence in this film, and you can't really claim that the lead characters would qualify as exactly desirable human beings in real life, but I still really liked this film a lot. Again, the best way I can put it is that it's what Natural Born Killers should have been.
