Fun film!
21 May 2000 | by mwf-5See all my reviews

Great for fans of the crime-on-the-run films. . . funny and unique twist on the genre with great characters and some very, very funny moments.

Similar to Tarantino, and miles above Stone's horrible Natural Born Killers, Love and a .45 is a delight.
