Storyline

Four housewives who find themselves suddenly in desperate need of money for dire individual circumstances begin to consider the possibility of armed robbery as a way out of their various dilemmas. Kathy is a previously wealthy whose former football star husband has absconded with their funds and left her and their children to face his violent creditors. Pat needs money to get her drug-addicted son into an expensive rehabilitation center. Val struggles for options in her crisis: pregnancy, possibly by her white husband's black best friend. And Paula, Val's sister, needs the thrill of danger even more than money. Together they plot a robbery that leads them further into crime and possible disaster. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Absolute Trash
16 June 2003 | by nakorSee all my reviews

It is somewhat hard to believe, but in australia this piece of trash actually got primetime billing, which unbelievable to say the least.

This seems to be a typical day-time tv mini-series. The women are blantantly protrayed as "out of luck" etc with none of it being their fault, meanwhile all the men are shown to be complete morons who have gone around and screwed over their respective wives. The women band together while everyone else leaves them out to dry or tries to take advantage of them. Their would be better plotlines on some kind of feminism propoganda. I've seen soapies with more believable acting. Very one dimensional plot, definately not worth anyone's time.
