LOVE AND A .45 (1994)
I remember seeing this film as a teenager when it came out and enjoying it, but watching it now it doesn't hold up very well. There's very little action and I never once got a feeling that Watty or Starlene were ever in much trouble. The whole movie Starlene's just giggling away. You would think they were on a road trip to a petting zoo not on the run for their lives.
Average pace, dated everything, Peter Fonda in a small role, Rene Zellweger actually looking attractive, a nod to PINK FLAMINGOS, nice looking old cars, $279 VCR's, nice Texas scenery, a skull tattoo, Jeffery Combs as a mobster bill collector, fork to neck stabbing, a young Gil Bellows and a soundtrack featuring stuff like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Mazzy Star, The Reverend Horton Heat and Johnny Cash.
For a low-budget movie you could definitely do worse, but I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it.
