What little narrative or characterization shows up on screen could barely fill an abridged short story.

... a cult classic of seventies speed cinema, where car chase and stunt films were really about rubber hitting-and leaving-the road.

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is a classic heist chase picture driven by a somewhat dated premise and paper-thin characters.

Time Out

The script, about small-timers who wished they were bigger, is soon totally undermined by Fonda's most complacent performance to date and Susan George's sub-Goldie Hawn antics.

The film is so bereft of emotion and so full of physical movement that it's possible this is a point that John Hough, the director, and the screenwriters wanted to make. It's a very small point to be made by such a noisy picture.
