Petula is rescued from a brutal beating at the hands of her thug boyfriend by Dorothy, a woman whose own life is in absolute chaos as the result of an abusive, junkie male companion. When faced with the realization that her good deed will likely not go unpunished, Dorothy and the dim-witted Petula must figure out what to do with the now-dead body of the boyfriend and how to escape the more-than-likely retaliation by his criminal-kingpin brother.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer and coproducer Simon Donald offers an efficient plot, and director Bill Eagles knows how to pace the actors and action while delivering it."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The dialogue is banal and the characters are irritatingly dumb."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The well of surprise is all but parched in the post-Tarantino seriocomic crime caper genre."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"A black comedy triggered with snide Guy Ritchie type of lowbrow British humor that is not as clever as it thinks it is."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Style doesn't count for much if you just don't care."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"Emits an aura of contrived cool."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Tedious and unfunny."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"The main problems with Beautiful Creatures lie in execution -- the film's baser machinations come across as nothing more than indie film quirks."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Engaging and successful for fans of the genre"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Suffers from familiarity -- this whole genre should take a well-deserved rest."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"Too much style and not enough of anything else."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Why should boys have all the fun in the movies?"
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"More Tom and Jerry than Thelma and Louise."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Always surprising and the performances are carefully calibrated."
‑ Jay Stone, Ottawa Citizen
"A fun, Bound-like off-kilter psycho-dance."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
