We gave it a C-

A new test case for suspension of disbelief. Would you buy that Karen McCoy (Kim Basinger) picked up all the skills necessary to become a notorious bank-heist artiste while married to a peckerwood used-car salesman? That the local Mr. Big (Terence Stamp) would involve her in a theft for a measly $18 million when he already belongs to the snootiest country club in Atlanta? That she would find a petty-theft klutz (Val Kilmer) even remotely attractive? If so, would you be interested in buying a bridge?
