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

Trivia

Eddie Dodson was a Hollywood playboy who robbed 64 banks between July, 1983 and February, 1984 - including six on one day. He served almost 10 years in prison, got out and after a few months was offered a job as a housesitter by Jack Nicholson. Jack sent Eddie to drug treatment twice but on Eddie's third relapse, he lost his position. Two weeks thereafter Eddie got off parole. Two weeks after that he started robbing banks again. He robbed eight more (Eddie said nine, the FBI says eight) before getting arrested again. This time he got a sentence of 46 months, owing in part to a failing liver. He served 40 months, got out in October of 2002, and died in February of 2003 of liver failure. See more »

There could NOT be a spoiler: I JUST watched this film, and I have NO IDEA what happened, nor how it ends.
21 April 2015 | by bstengel-05194See all my reviews

OK OK. I cannot totally trash this movie. On the other hand......... YES, I watched it pretty much because of the "name" JIM STURGESS. I have admired him for his work in various films. I was anticipating good things.

OK OK. I blame the director. WHO apparently OK'd Jim's silly costume, as well as that ridiculous mustachio, BUT. Here's the WORST: I always note that the Really BAD Actors wander around "expressing" emotions by keeping their Mouths OPEN ! what ??? WHY ?

Sweet JIM, in this role, kept his mouth open throughout PLUS had a scene of chewing gum......I mean CHEWING gum.......what? why?

As an actor, Jim should've protested. As a director ? I'm sorry, it was a waste of supreme talent.
