Trouble Bound Movie Review

It's wacky fun on the run with an ex-con (Michael Madsen), a mafioso's daughter (Patricia Arquette), and a dead body locked in the trunk of the car they've stolen together.

Even in 1992, this didn't pass for much of a premise, and the random road trip our heroes take doesn't pass for much of a plot either. They flirt, they fight, they philosophize endlessly in the way that ex-cons and mafiosos' daughters do. At least they do in the movies. Plot points are thrown at us with little care -- even less care than Madsen and Arquette seem to be taking with their acting lessons.

Forgotten on arrival.
