“You said we were getting hamburgers.”
Watch the film:
Poor Dennis. With a pregnant girlfriend increasingly nervous about their financial state of affairs and a volatile criminal mastermind for a boss, Dennis is definitely feeling the heat from all sides to make the job work. For all intents and purposes, the master plan is clear and simple enough: abduct nine-year old Penny, drag her to the desert and squeeze the father for the ransom. What could go wrong? It’s a piece of cake.
Oh, there’s one small detail. Have we mentioned that Penny wants a milkshake?
Written and directed by Shane Atkinson. Principal cast: Oona Laurence, David Stevens, Marnie Schulenburg, Rick Zahn and Richard D. Busser.
