MOVIE REVIEW:Dirty Mary Crazy Larry
Without doubt this is one of the more enjoyable car chase movies I have
seen. The car stunts are fantastic and stand the test of time. It's
fair to say that the plot has flaws and the acting is a little wooden
in places, but for all that it comes across as a fun movie.
On a wet Wednesday evening it is truly a great film to watch with your
mates whilst having a few beers.
This has better acting than 'Gone in 60 seconds(1974) and a better car
chase than 'Bullitt (1968).
This film is a time waster in the best possible way. If you haven't
seen it then I would encourage you to go out and buy it.
The film's ending certainly caught me by surprise and in many ways is
the best way to conclude this film.

Peter Fonda's on the road again — but as an Easy Rider of a whole
nuther stripe. Here he's a wisecracking psychopath who races his
chartreuse Chevy down backroads like they're NASCAR — other traffic,
cop cars or not, be damned.
This trip is one long chase scene with the law after Crazy Larry, his
deadpan partner (a sublime Adam Roarke), and Susan George's Dirty Mary
flee with a cache of ill-gotten ransom.
This set-in-the-middle-of-nowhere movie keeps you interested mainly for
the repartee among its cast, rounded out by a world-weary Vic Morrow,
who plays a police captain with contempt for underlings who'd do a lot
better if he'd buy them a decent patrol car.
Each of the characters here really IS a character, and they form the
motliest of ensembles that's lots of fun to watch. Fonda and Roark are
perfectly paired foils. Mary seems wild-eyed nuts at times. But
otherwise, "Dingleberry" can be exquisitely perceptive. "Things felt a
little too good for you last night — so you ran!" she yells at Larry.
And later, "people don't even rate a glance with you." Moments before
the movie's shocking ending she brilliantly declares her final gambit.
The rivalry between Morrow and his superior on the force is an unlikely
treat along the way. (It's a little creepy to see Morrow, only eight
years from the freak helicopter accident that took his life, pursuing
crooks in a chopper that's low on fuel.)
In all, an entertaining example of Seventies film at its best.
