With its downtown context and mood of escalating desperation, the movie bears a strong resemblance to Martin Scorsese's Manhattan odyssey, After Hours.

Without a single redeeming character or moment that rings true, audiences will likely cheer for all the bad things that happen to this truly reprehensible couple.
