Refusing to be played by this new competition and give up the demanded two million dollars, the leaders of the gang of robbers, Mason (Kevin McNally ) and Kerrigan (Sir Michael Gambon), decide to start playing dirty tricks, threaten violence and counterfeit money in an effort to throw the two women off course. When the blackmail and counter attacks hurt an innocent bystander, the kooky best friends must use their friendship to empower each other to lure the hardened criminals into a risky trap.Written by
The robbery at the beginning of this movie was inspired by the real-life Baker Street robbery of 1971. Elements in this movie from the real-life bank robbery include: the robbers tunnelling in from the store next door, looting the safe deposit boxes, a spotter on the roof across the street, and their communications being picked by local radio and scanning equipment.

If this was a film about two guys, it would seem silly, stupid and highly improbable. For that matter, it would be hard to believe if both of the women were Americans, and the setting was New York or Los Angeles. But the setting is Britain, and although one of the women is American, the other is more conventionally English. The mix makes for enough reasonable doubt that the story seems at least imaginable. Otherwise, plots in which two women are the central characters in a send-up of gangster films are rare, and this one is treated intelligently. The two women are smart and quick witted. In contrast, the bad guys are not just goof balls, like the title would seem to imply. They are creepy and dangerous, and the two gals soon find themselves in over their heads. The tension sometimes approaches real drama, but it is ultimately a comedy,. It is well worth watching, although the ending may seem a bit abrupt. The two ladies have minds of their own and some great lines to say.
