A movie directed by Bob Gosse
What do you get when a couple of 13-year-olds replayDog Day Afternoon? The title is a clever pun on the film's inspirations (there's also a little ofReservoir Dogsrattling around the back of the picture), but it's neither a comedy nor a gritty thriller. … see full wiki
Two kids decide to hold up a bank. No specific reason, just because it's there. The boy, Stevie, is the leader of the two. He whips his dad's pistol out of his backpack and barges into the bank forcing everyone to the floor. Rocky, his girlfriend, remain's hesitant at first, but is soon enjoying a pleasure that she had never experienced: being on television. It may seem horrible that a film about youngster's holding up a bank even exist's, but Ash has directed a lyrical justice needing to be seen.
You must understand why the movie was made at all; to shock and baffle. In a time where children are shooting down school hall's and killing their parent's, Ash's film gave me a new insight to the kid's point of view. What flow's through the strained mind of a child that doesn't care if he blows away a security guard? Rocky is very disturbed, and at the same time very innocent.
Burt Reynold's shows up on the scene amidst a swarm of cops as the nagotiator. He blast's hateful word's out at Rocky and Stevie so fast that his tongue and lips can barely support the cigarette hanging from his mouth. His problem's range from the bank - to home. (His wife call's him every 15 second's and he blast's her too.)
Some have said that Pup's was too long. How silly is that!
Another problem that someone complained about, was the fact that the hostages could have "taken out" the kids by snapping their neck. The person that said that didn't understand the relationship quickly developed between the kids and those held captive by them.
