For a low budget thriller Molly & Gina isn't bad.
Despite the low budget and familiar theme, "Molly & Gina" isn't a bad film. Francis Fisher and Natasha Greson Wagner make a nice team. Molly as a private detective's girl Friday and Molly as a green haired free spirit. When their boyfriends are murdered, they attempt to find out why. In the process they uncover a plot by a wealthy industrialist to murder his granddaughter played by Elizabeth Berkley because she knows too much. There is the usual mayhem but the story line is reasonably devoid of holes and the pacing is smooth and correct. Francis is perfect as the hardboiled detective substitute and Natasha as the able but inexperienced sidekick. Elizabeth is fine as the teenager fearfull for her life. All is all, a nice thriller.
