Best Laid Plans


A college drop-out is caught in a dead end job in a dead end town, looking after his ailing father. His father dies and leaves him nothing but a pile of debts. The only thing going well for him is his new girlfriend. A chance to make some easy cash, and a way out of town, only leads to more trouble. Soon he and his college friend are caught in a web of sex, thefts, gangsters and kidnappings.

Ian Douglas: Shades of ''The Sting'', ''House of Games'' and especially ''Wild Things'', the plot revolves around elaborate con games. But who is conning who? Like ''Wild Things'', the film sets out to deliberately mislead you. No fair.
