| Funny, clever and accurate portrayal of a group of broke, desperate female roommates who resort to illegal tactics in attempt to survive in NYC.
Very amusing in it's depiction of life for a group of twenty something young women roommates in Manhattan who can't find jobs any of them can stand, can't manage their romantic relationships and all suffer from crushing debt. Their eventual shift to "a life of crime" - well, being bookies anyway, is fresh and interesting. To criticize that the bookie aspect of the film is not "realistic", is to miss the point entirely. This film hits the mark on the struggle to live and thrive in Manhattan under difficult circumstances. Production values are low as I understand this was an indie feature.
