Another Australian movie trying to cool and not only failing at whatever box office it landed in (as far as I know) but not making much of an impact creatively either.

I think it's trying to be a music video Bonnie and Clyde, but it turns out a more or less ugly and not terribly exciting story of two deadbeat lovers who become criminals on the run for a living, her seducing their marks, he providing the muscle where necessary. When a scam goes wrong they take to the outback highways, pursued by two cops.

I don't remember a point or resolution and it's best avoided. Matt Day is too insipid to be a bad guy, and Frances O'Connor isn't attractive enough to be a sexy vamp. Better casting might have helped, but nothing about the story stands out either.
