Storyline

One stormy Glasgow night Dorothy and Petula's lives are inextricably thrown together, bonded by a common flaw. Dorothy's on the run from her boyfriend and Petula should be doing the same.

User Reviews

Vile, derivative and empty
19 April 2004 | by VooveSee all my reviews

The trouble with commenting on a film like this is that if you say you found it offensive its makers might think they did something clever. They didn't. It's a thoroughly routine piece of Nineties film-making, a fourth-rate Tarantino swipe with side-grabs at Bound and Thelma & Louise. Its scenes of shooting up and gunning down and blood and sadism aren't shocking, merely disgusting and depressing: they don't challenge anyone's sense of moral order, just play to today's market. Not very well, however, since the film dropped dead at the box office - and no wonder. As a thriller it's inept from start to finish, with a storyline founded on coincidence and developed with extreme clumsiness.
