Plot (Summary written by user “Larry Rayder” from IMDB): Larry and Deke are a small time car racing duo who rob a grocery store, and plan to use the proceeds to buy an expensive race car in order to win more races and break in to the professional NASCAR circuit. Their escape with the loot does not go as smoothly as planned when Larry’s one night stand, Mary, tags along for the ride.

Why It’s a Staff Pick: “Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry” is a staff pick, and a great one at that, not only because of its great car chase sequences but because of its brilliant sense of humor. This movie had some truly great one liners thrown about between the threesome of Mary, Deke, and Larry, but very few are better than or as good as “so help me, if you try another stunt like that again i’m gonna braid your tits.” The movie had me genuinely cracking up many, many times. It really has something for everyone: cheesy acting, cool-as-hell cars, well-shot chase scenes, wonderful action, hilarious one-liners, and on top of that it really is just a fun movie. A very, very fun movie that provides a truly good time for the viewer. You don’t even need to be a car lover to appreciate and enjoy this movie, you just need a sense of fun and humor.

My Rating: 8/10

Thanks for Reading!
