CGiii Comment

Billed and marketed as a comedy-crime-caper...it's not, in the slightest. Where exactly is the comedy supposed to be?

From the off...this is just horrible...but, interesting. A lesbian power couple manipulate the system...to provide guardianship for the elderly, vulnerable and lonely...only on one condition, they have to have a lovely little nest full of golden eggs! Eggs which they will crack open...and dine off...for the rest of their greedy lives!

Sounds interesting, doesn't it? Unfortunately, after a strong start...this rapidly descends into catastrophe rather than caper.

J Blakeson, it would seem, did absolutely no research into the legal process of [court appointed] Guardianship. Lawyers are corrupt [no surprise there], judges are corrupt, doctors are corrupt, care homes are corrupt...it's all just too easy. Then, in walks the Russian mafia...an organisation that is - quite literally - kicked in the balls by one feisty lesbian. Ouch!

Seriously...this could have been something that would have provoked an air-punching, collective cheer for a well-deserved comeuppance...because, Rosamund Pike does vile with first-class-ticket perfection...it's just a shame that the writer/director thought/bought economy...when cashing in on the script.

The(ir) Blurb...

Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It's a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover, Fran, use with brutal efficiency on their latest 'cherry,' Jennifer Peterson - a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster, Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play - one that's neither fair, nor square.
