Love and a .45 (1994)

Love and a .45 (1994, USA) C-102m. *** D: C.M. Talkington. Starring Gil Bellows, Renée Zellweger, Rory Cochrane, Jeffrey Combs, Jace Alexander, Ann Wedgeworth, Peter Fonda, Jack Nance, C.M. Talkington. Black comedy thriller, very much in the vein of TRUE ROMANCE (1993). Bellows and Zellweger must run from police, creditors and a fellow gangster, when their latest robbery goes terribly wrong. Violence paves their way to Mexico. Well-acted, entertaining B-movie with an attitude and a cool soundtrack. Love that RAISING ARIZONA-like voice-over narration. Premiered at about the same time as PULP FICTION (1994), which may be a reason why this didn't get the attention it deserves. Written by director Talkington, who has a cameo as the tattoo artist.
