Product Description:

A pair of dangerous lovers turn fugitive when the guy and his psycho partner kill a girl during a robbery. Like Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue, they take the money and run for the border.

Description by Lions Gate Home Entertainment:

In the tradition of PULP FICTION, TRUE ROMANCE and RESERVOIR DOGS, LOVE AND A .45 is a cutting edge story of two fugitive lovers on a fast and furious run for freedom. With a pounding soundtrack and brilliant performances from a sexy young cast, this raw and turb ulent film shows the talents of a new force in filmmaking. Watty (Gil Bellows), Starlene (Renee Zellwegger), and their friends are just as tough and dangerous as the Texas town they live in. When Watty and his psychotic partner Bill Mack (Rory Cochrane) murder a young girl in a botched robbery, Watty and Starlene turn their fight into a wild honeymoon joyride, where all you need for a good t ime is LOVE AND A .45. This is one jagged twisted ride you'll never forget.

Plot Synopsis:

During a holdup in Texas, speed freak Billy Mack gets nervous and kills a store clerk who's also the sheriff's daughter. So his partner in crime, Watty Watts, shoots and wounds him. But Billy survives, vowing revenge.
With the cops, Billy and a couple of loan sharks nipping at their heels, Watty and his girlfriend Starlene hit the road. And the young lovers, deluded by the glamorous mystique of Bonnie and Clyde, aspire to TV stardom even as they shoot their way to Mexico.
