Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

B road-movie that serves only to underline how much Monte Hellman transformed the genre with Two-Lane Blacktop. This outing offers little more than plastic, would-be superstars playing at being kooky people as Fonda holds up a supermarket and drives around furiously, the police in pursuit, with his mechanic and girl-along-for-the-ride in tow (yes, another fashionable three-way relationship). The script, about small-timers who wished they were bigger, is soon totally undermined by Fonda's most complacent performance to date and Susan George's sub-Goldie Hawn antics. By way of compensation, the locations are quite pretty and the car stunts are handled with a certain verve.
