    Love and a .45
    Two young lovers go on the run from the law after a convenience store robbery goes bad in this road movie. Love and a .45 centers on philosophically inclined thief Watty Watts (Gil Bellows), who believes in a little robbery but not real violence. An ill-advised collaboration with a crazed, drugged-out biker (Rory Cochrane) ends badly, however, forcing Watty to go on the run. His girlfriend Starlene (Renee Zellweger) joins him, and the two become media darlings thanks to television coverage of their flight from the law. First-time director C.M. Talkington's combination of violence and ironic attitude recalls both 1970s crime dramas and Quentin Tarantino's violent, quirky takes on the genre. However, the film's warmed-over feel may be redeemed by its irreverent tone and appealing performances, including a self-parodying appearance by Peter Fonda. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

      A crazy ride


      In the vein of movies like True Romance, Love and a .45 is a thrill-a-minute ride with larger than life characters (including a very young Renee Zellweger and a memorable cameo from Peter Fonda) caught up in a never-ending story with more twists and turns than most roller coasters. A great soundtrack keeps the frantic pace moving along nicely.

      I first saw this years ago and I loved the feel the movie had. Reverend Horton Heat appearance is a definite plus
