Desperation drives four inner-city women to bank robbery in Los Angeles, then they start mistrusting each other.
F. Gary Gray asked Vivica A Fox to read and audition for the part of Frankie.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton:
T.T.? She ain't gettin a cut!
Lida 'Stony' Newsom: Look, Frankie I ain't for your shit tonight all right? T.T. needs it more than any of us.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: Look, she didn't do anything. She walked out!
Cleo: Who the fuck cares? She was there.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: No, fuck that! She didn't do nothin' so she ain't ...
Numerous errors in gun visual/sound effects and operation. During the final bank shootout, Stony's gun runs out of ammunition (evidenced by the slide locking back). However, she continues to pull the trigger generating a "click click" sound. Modern semi-automatic pistols such as the Glock Stony is using do not return the trigger to a ready-to-fire position until the slide closes and another round is chambered. Therefore, it is impossible to generate several audible clicks with an empty weapon.
When Stoney arrives at Keith's house in her colourful attire, he goes upstairs. In the Directors Cut, a scene is added in which Stoney opens the door to two police men enquiring residents of the area about the recent car theft in the area. Stoney panics, but Keith calms her down.
