Terrific Writing!
11 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I about peed in my pants during JT's encounter with the employment agent, and the actor who played the colorful, in-way-over-his-head Jimmy Bobo fellow was typecast for that role. Without giving away the central plot line, the concept of planning the heist without considering its spoil rate was genius, while at the same time showing the desperation (and ignorance) of the main characters, who despite their limited means, never seem to lack for smokes, booze and choice language. Oh, and we watched it a second time and picked up on even more of the hysterical irony. I look forward to more hilariously insightful films from Gregg Russell.
