Starring: James Woods, Melanie Griffith, Vincent Kartheiser, Natasha Gregson Wagner
A small time crook, Bobbie (Kartheiser), mugged people and broke into slot machines to get money for his daily dose of dope for him and his girlfriend Rosie (Wagner). Not even of age yet, the two are complete junkies and are a waste in life. Mel (Woods), a more accomplished criminal, discovers Bobbie and decides to introduce him to bigger loots, and along with his live-in girlfriend Sid (Griffith), start to train him. Life is good, money is good and everyone is having a good time when suddenly things start to get very ugly and the 'kids' Bobbie and Rosie start to realise that this might not be what they actually wanted in life. Near death experiences, differences, fights all start eating into their lives and what seemed to be gold on the outside turned out to be ugly rotten filth on the inside. The movie starts on a decently high note but development is slow, boring, predictable and not all that entertaining. Performances are mediocre and there are far better movies on speed-junkies and crime that the world has seen.
Thumbs up: Good start
Thumbs down: Bad plot development, boring and predictable
