6 May 2009 | by bluscreenmediaSee all my reviews

Loved this movie seen it at NY film festival last summer it a real look at LA and how the end justifies the means SEAN YOUNG is Great AND THAT KID MATT Dallas from Kyle is in it. the story is about a couple of friends who gets dogged out in there life BUT come up with a plan a Porche a nice office and new wardrobe that changes there luck . It also makes you wonder if the end really justifies the means ,here comes the gold diggers more cash more parties and a whole lot of sex, they are living the dream. But what goes up must come down and these guys are so busy trying to ball that they forgot to spend time running their business and to top it off they used Danny Trejos money to party with . Rule number one never mess with Danny's money. Even I know that!!! Cool and relevant film great performances.

Danny Trejo is actually very cool I highly recommend this film when it comes out Very COO0000000000000L
