2000 R

In this kinky thriller punctuated by offbeat humor, ditzy Petula (Rachel Weisz) and cheeky Dorothy (Susan Lynch) find themselves with a pesky corpse on their hands after Dorothy saves Petula by conking her abusive beau on the head with a scaffolding pipe. Instead of dumping the body, however, the women cook up a kidnapping story to bilk the victim's brother for ransom. But a corrupt cop who's out to line his pockets puts a kink in the duo's plan.
