Well above average!!!
8 October 2006 | by idgleepSee all my reviews

Absolutely great movie. In the style of "Pulp Fiction" or "Trainspotting" (sort of). Very pulpy and alive. Hilarious full characters and wonderfuls plot development with plenty of hilarious lines and laughable twists and turns! RENT IT!! You won't be sorry.

When I see most movies I feel like I can figure out the plot within moments. I always have the feeling that I know what is going on next and I am usually right, but this movie was different. It kept me on my toes and had a great presentation ( original adaptation of an old standard). "Smala Susie" is definitely one of my new top ten movies of all time. I rented it and have bought it shortly afterwards!!
