Storyline

Bobby G. lives life on the edge in this real, raw New York street drama. Bobby is a small-time coke dealer, always on the hustle but rarely successful. He lives in Hell's Kitchen with his Puerto Rican girlfriend Lucy, who makes ends meet as a prostitute. A typical day finds Bobby selling $20 bags to neighborhood locals and passing cars. A yuppie kid looking to score a kilo of coke approaches him to broker a deal and Bobby sees the opportunity of a lifetime to make some real money. His rough days may just be over. With the tidy profit he could even leave the business. Playing out of his league, Bobby arranges to get the kilo from Astro, a fearsome, high-level drug dealer. Though Lucy announces that she's decided to go back to Puerto Rico and pleads with him to make a fresh start too, Bobby is sticking to his deal and isn't going anywhere now, convinced he'll be 'livin' large in a matter a' days. "On deal day the client gets nervous and the plan goes awry with Bobby turning over the ... Written by Jason McCallum

LEAN STREETS
2 July 2002 | by george.schmidtSee all my reviews

BOBBY G. CAN'T SWIM (2002) ** John-Luke Montias, Susan Mitchell, Vincent Vega, Norman Middleton, Paul Maged, Donna Sonkin, Andrew Rein. Low-budget indie flick reminiscent of `Mean Streets' but without the footloose charm about a low-life trying to make a big score to get a new lease on life. Some competent acting but predictable script by Montias (who also directed) leaves little to be desired but his female co-stars Mitchell and Sonkin have their few moments in the sun.
