Lola and Chelsea know nothing of each other, only that they wait for the bus everyday at the same time. This all changes when the two women intervene in a fatal carjacking and are subsequently thrust into a chase from authorities across Australia with a vehicle filled with cash. The strangers must rely on each other and their instincts while they are on the run.
Great caper, comedic, thrilling engaging, if a little too contrived.
A hugely enjoyable twist on a tried and tested old storyline of hapless innocents wandering into a heist plot with gangsters and bent cops. Better than expected. Yes the plot is daft and much of the on goings incredulous but the two lead actresses are good enough chemistry and subtle comedy with a warm relationship & some painful life truths to carry this through. Its an Australian "Thelma and Louise" meets "Home & Away" meets "it's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" The only complaint is some of the support acting is atypical B rate Australian soap, in fact almost all the support are dreadfully inept actors & that somewhat lets down the hard effort of the two leads & the writers
Predictable but great fun. Just when you think its over, they're off again.
