4.0 out of 5 stars Bonnie and Clyde Mix Up July 24 2001
Format:VHS Tape
If you ever saw the movie Bonnie and Clyde with Faye Dunaway and Warren Batty you will know what I'm taliking about. This is a more up to date version and the charaters have switched. Judd being more like Clyde really in to guns and the thrill of the bad life and Perry being more like Bonnie excited but wants a normal life. I would have given the movie 5 stars but Judd doesn't seem to like shirts in the movie and being a girl I'm not really intrested. But a great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie June 8 2004
Format:VHS Tape
First off this was a true story. If you like drama movies you will like this. I really like this movie. Plus its even neater to me because all of the events that happend took place in my neighborhood hood and it was even filmed in my neighborhood. Perry and Judd's trailers were right down the street from my house when the movie was being filmed. But i really suggest watching this movie it was great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the average "doomed love" movie. June 20 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Ashley Judd plays Pam, a young woman on the edge of madness and Luke Perry is Chris, her husband. The film is loosely based on real events.
The storyline is very basic indeed. Chris and Pam meet and, despite their differences, they marry. They stay together despite Pam's increasingly deep and hurtful bouts of insanity. The marriage finally costs Chris his job as a cop and, in a last attempt to make ends meet, he takes to robbing banks.
His background as a cop means that he is pretty good at this and soon, he and Pam are benefitting from the fruits of his labours. Then, one day Pam finds out about the bank robberies and this changes their relationship forever but with destructive consequences.
It's not much of a plot but it is only there as a platform for the film to explore the relationship between Pam and Chris.
Pam desperately wants a man who will care for her and so she wants a man like Chis but she cannot respond to him. She is emotionally and sexually frigid. Chris wants to take care of Pam in the way that he thinks he should but he is unable to get through to her.
It turns out the what Pam really needs is a tough, all action strong guy who will care for her emotional needs as well. When she realises that her man has become a bank robber, suddenly, he is the man of her dreams and she bursts open with a new joy for life.
This scenario depends very much on the performaces from the two leads. Judd did her job well, you could really feel the troubles inside the mind of her character and without this, the film would have been poor indeed. Luke Perry was not so good. As far as I could see, his character was only staying with Pam because that's what it said in the script. There was no sense of why Chris needed Pam so much that he sat through all of the pain. Only in the closing moments did you see a sign of how much she was to him.
It was a very hard roll to play but I'm afraid that he was not really up to it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassing. March 24 2000
Format:VHS Tape
More often than not, an early title card that reads "inspired by a true story" translates to a film maker's apology for what is going to be an embarrassing work. And electronic titles as well, the cheapest possible-cheap like they use for the late-night cable movies suggests this project was scrapped-pieces pasted together into something presentable, but hardly watchable.
And when you're right, you're right.
Good, lonely boy meets bad, bad girl, in a bad, bad, bad, movie
It seems inappropriate to criticize the actors, as I can't imagine there was even a script. Every scene seems to be a series of bad improvs, almost amateurish audition pieces. I was a John McNaughton fan based on his first feature: "Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer", a low budget, but high-energy, inventive piece of film making. But this mess is only familiar to that film as regards overall production value.
By my count this makes 5 movies in a row where the high point of Ashley Judd's performance seems to be her undressing and /or use of dirty language. This list includes her role as the young Norma Jean Baker (Marilyn Monroe). Maybe a case of life imitates art?

5.0 out of 5 stars You guys have no clue whatsoever June 4 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
People who complain that a movie is slow appearantly will enjoy some action-thriller garbage with Jackie Chan or Bruce Willis because one's IQ doesn't have to be too big. To watch and understand a motion picture with the depth of this brilliant film requires ... well ... concentration and intelligence. One of the so-called critics said the only good thing about the film was that Luke Perry was in it. Oh, how intelligent, how explicative. That's the kind of comment one would expect from someone who wouldn't know a good movie if it bit them. Well this film was based on a true story. People confuse slowness with character development --and it was essential in helping us understand why people did what they did. And about Ashley Judd being naked through half the movie? HALF? HALF? Think about that. That's, at best, an exaggeration. She was not naked for an hour, not even for a half an hour. Not even for fifteen minutes collectively. How does that amount to half? And how often do real people walk around the house topless or naked--a lot, especially when they don't live with mommy and daddy anymore. I found this a very well made movie, but am not alone. Gene Siskel (a prominent movie critic, if you know what they are) found it to be one of the best movies released that year. It's all a matter of opinion, I know, but I think people who want to review such a film (escpecially one this good) need to validate their criticisms. But I imagine that's impossible for some people because it requires a mentality of an adult.

3.0 out of 5 stars This movie is actually pretty good
Yeah, some parts of this movie, including the ending, are trite. Overall however, the film is very engaging. The fact that it is based on a true story makes it even better. Read more
