Surrounded by violent men in their loves, circumstances cause two women to form a protective partnership. This is an entertaining black comedy but lacks the pacing, clever script, and bizarre edge that distinguish the best of this sub-genre of films. Weisz, sporting a blonde do, and Lynch are pretty good, playing a variation on the Thelma and Louise theme. This is the only feature film made by TV director Eagles, and he lacks the absurdist touch of the likes of the Coen Brothers, Guy Ritchie, and Quinton Tarantino. A similar film that is superior in every respect is the Wachowski Brothers' stylish and alluring "Bound." The dog is cute.
