Storyline

In rural Sunrise, Illinois, waitress Linda Bronco wants her son Mike to go to college, but all summer after high school, his dim friend Lenny Lake leads Mike into trouble. Their life of crime soon involves Linda, too, as they need money for a lawyer (Lenny's charlatan grandpa Ron, whose trophy wife is the ex-girlfriend of Brian, Linda's latest lover). When Ron fails Mike, Linda decides to send Mike to private college, so she needs more money. After Brian gives them a tip on cash at Mr. Snack, a fast food joint, it's robbery time. Then there's Suzi and Suzy, young women who work at Mr. Snack and have their eyes on Mike and Lenny. Is there a ticket out of the trailer park? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good Movie
23 December 2001 | by big_show2005See all my reviews

I think Poor White Trash was a good movie.At first I thought that I wouldn't like the movie and when I watched it I was surprised.The main reason I got it was because I really like Jaime Pressly and I thought she did a wonderful job in it.All of the cast was wonderful.If you have some extra money you will enjoy this movie.

Enjoy.
