Getaway > Wiki


A remake of the 1971 film based on Jim Thompson's novel. A woman sleeps with a sleazy gangster to get her bank robber husband out of jail, promising to do another bank job for him. When they are doublecrossed, they flee the mob and the cops while questioning their own loyalty to each other. The unrated version includes a steamier scene with Basinger and Baldwin.

Pros: fairly short movie     Cons: ....the movie     a.k.a. if I could get you out of prison by sleeping with James Woods, would it be ok? Frankly, probably the best thing going for the movie would be the fact that Woods gets to sleep with Basinger. Otherwise - pppfffttt!      Sometimes remakes shouldn't go there. This is a confusing gig made up of too many people chasing Alec Baldwin. So many stories are crossbreeding here you can't figure …
