The bar where Chris and Pam first meet is the Bartlett Tap, and is located in downtown Bartlett. It's a tavern that has been there since the 1800's. See more »
The director took creative liberties with the news story. The names were changed in the film hence the factual errors. Bonnie 'n Clyde: 60172, revealed much of the story itself played up in Roselle and most of Hoffman Estates and Schamburg. The scenes of Hanover Park were like in the news story too. The Hanover Park shots were on Elgin-Chicago Road known as Irving Park Road west of the city where it is known as Irving Park along Roselle, Hanover Park, Bensonville, and Itasca. In Elgin the name changes to E. Chicago Street. See more »
Portuguese version misses about 9 minutes of the original movie. There are no scenes of nudity or sex, and not a single swear word. Even the scenes showing characters with guns pointed at their own heads were removed. In Portugal there is no censorship, but it seems the local distributor brought in a version made for American networks. See more »
Well drawn characters of a hopelessly incompatible couple.
An incompatible couple try to find a normal life. Differences of opinion constantly lead to outbursts of anger and threats of ending the partnership. Pam (Ashley Judd) is an irresponsible woman who makes up for the lack of excitement in her life by indulging in drugs and alcohol. She is certainly not content to be a housewife. Policeman Chris (Luke Perry) on the other hand is a level-headed husband who pampers her in every material way. He is soon in dreadful debt.
The turbulent life-style of these two main characters occupy the screen most of the time and we feel there is no hope for either of them. Indeed their incompatibility is enough to put one totally off marriage. Their shouting matches are quite savage and somewhat depressing.
When Chris resigns from the police force and discovers a new way to riches and living life to the full, excitement takes over and the characters are fired with a new enthusiasm. Pam insists she be a part of this new game and for a time she becomes a new woman.
The characters are well drawn, the car chases quite exciting. This change of mood spices up their sex lives clearly depicted in a series of bedroom scenes.
The final sequences are dramatic and exciting so stay with the film to the end. The old saying that "Crime does not pay" is clearly delivered and understood.
