So, there I was, enjoying "There's Somethinh About Mary" on TV tonight, wondering why Matt Dillon hadn't made many good films, 'cos he's not a bad actor at all. And then I remembered this.
This movie's so real, its scary. This gripping film about a family of drug thieves is based on a novel by convicted drug robber, a man who knows his subject well.
Addicted husband and wife team, Bob and Diane Hughes (Matt Dillon and Kelly Lynch), and a younger couple of thieves resort to robbing drugstores to stay high. Still, in spite of this tragic lifestyle, they share moments of compassion and humor.
The foursome skillfully skirt the law due to Bob's wits and superstitious nature until the day his luck begins to change. When his death appears inevitable, Bob realizes he must give up drugs and Diane to Survive.

*Awful cover to the DVD. Don't know what they were thinking of issuing that as the cover. Doesn't suggest the film at all. I had this on VHS and it was a nice sweet red/black design. But don't let that put you off. This is a superb film. Don't put it on the bed though. once it arrives*
