Summary: Cute movie, absurd in places.
Willis & Thornton play a radically different pair of escaped convicts that go on a spree of bank robberies. After a lengthy string of ONE robbery, they become nationally known as the "Sleepover Bandits". That made no sense to me.

Blanchett plays a very psychotic and distraught distressed homebody wife, a redhead that reminded me too much of my ex. Unhappy with her stable life and beautiful house and large kitchen, she inexplicably decides to runaway with the bandits and boink the both of them and them miserably whine that she can't decide which one she wants to keep. So she keeps both by having neither... what?? What a stupid cop-out.

But then, the movie doesn't try to make any sense or resolve any issues, it's just a goofy, cute movie with several funny scenes and an absurd plot.
