Storyline

A black comedy revolving around the humiliating lengths that people will resort to in order to get by in an unstable financial world from applying for welfare to the compromise of personal ideals to all out robbery. The film follows four characters - two leftover punks from the 80s, a typical gray-suited businessman and a vegetarian idealist - in their desperate struggle to hold onto their respective stations in life. These deftly interwoven stories form a cautionary tale of how people deal with the search for quick cash. In desperate times, even good people turn to bad money. Written by John Hazlett and Blake Brooker

A film that laughs in the face of financial ruin
13 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Clever, biting comedy about the lengths average people go to to preserve their wealth and power. Even an ardent vegetarian isn't above butchering cute bunny rabbits to prop up her ailing restaurant. A must-see for anyone who is in need of a laugh!
