Storyline

It's 1983 Los Angeles - beautiful girls, luxurious mansions, glamorous parties and Eddie Dodson, a very hip, very charismatic dealer of high-end antique furniture for the rich and famous. When Eddie meets the cool and aloof Pauline, the attraction is instant and the two live out each other's fast-paced fantasies. That is until Eddie's high-rolling life catches up with him and loan sharks start knocking on his door. To pay off his debts, Eddie and Pauline begin a spree of bank robberies across LA, charming tellers at over 60 banks to hand over the cash. Now the lovers are not only on the run from loan sharks but also have the police hot on their trail. Written by Anonymous

Style over substance
20 May 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

When I saw the trailer and the cast-list I thought that this looked really promising, when I saw the IMDb rating my hopes of it being great went down a bit but I thought maybe it could still be alright.

But it was just incredibly bland and initially extremely confusing to the point where it was barely comprehensible, 30 minutes in or so it gets slightly more focused telling a more linear story.

Jim Sturgess in the lead can be great but not in this movie, him speaking as if he's nose is constantly clogged up doesn't do him any favours.

Isabel Lucas is the female love (?) interest and I was surprised that she had so many credits on IMDb cause frankly she's like a empty vessel in this movie, I thought she was a model and was gonna write that she should stick to modelling but yeah she's actually a full-time actress.

Chloe Sevigny is in it for a couple scenes, she plays someone who had a thing with Jim's character prior to Isabel Lucas entering the picture she barely has any dialogue.

Christopher Lambert plays the mob (?) boss with a really fake-looking prosthetic nose Jim's character owes money.

Patricia Arqutte is in it for a couple scenes as well as some random milf with a look inspired by Brigitte Nielsen.

You don't really get to know any of the characters or given much info on what their relationship to one another is or given a reason why you should care for the fate of any of them for that matter.

It makes some half ass attempts at some comedic moments as well.

So yeah not terribly impressive.
