Bandits – Barry Levinson (2001)

Cheap entertainment, but amusingly so. Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton are great as an unlikely bank-robbing couple. Willis is of course the macho. Thornton the weird intellectual. Blake and Collins run into the gorgeous Kate Wheeler (Cate Blanchet) who joins them on their robbing trip. Nothing unexpected happens. Both men fall in love with Kate and in the end this situation leads them to being caught.

Willis, Thornton and Blanchet obviously had a fun time shooting this film. There are some witty dialogues and amusing (yet predictable) situations. Indeed, cheap entertainment, but amusingly so.

The film has some good (forgotten) music too.
