Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cast:Amanda Brooks, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Malcolm McDowell

Director:Gino Cabanas/Dick Fisher


Year: 2006


After her billionaire father (Malcolm McDowell) cuts her off, spoiled Patricia (Amanda Brooks) is driven to a desperate act of rebellion: With the help of her stoner boyfriend (Thomas Ian Nicholas), she turns to crime to restore her lavish lifestyle. But their attempt to knock over a check-cashing business spawns some nightmarish mishaps that turn the potential riches-to-rags-to-riches tale into a fugitive spree with the cops in hot pursuit.

Cut Off does have a lot going for it, one is it's cast, for starters it's nice to see Faye Dunaway again and Ann Archer as well as the always fantastic Malcolm McDowell. Also let's not forget Amanda Brooks as the young rich girl suddenly cut off by her rich dad and turning to a life of crime as a result. This young actress is a beautiful as she is talented. Right from the film's opening scene you know not to take this action film very serious as it doesn't even take itself serious which I think is why it was as much fun as it turned out to be. I film is full of interesting and zany characters, even the Detectives and other law enforcement in the movie are hilarious. You already know a bit about the film from reading above so I am not going to spoil any of the fun by giving away details as this one is more fun to watch than to be told about. Cut Off is an example of just how good Independent cinema is today but you might be hard pressed to find a hint of a low budget here as all production values are exceptional. Cut Off is a harmless film where all you need is something cold to drink and some popcorn, it has a little bit of everything including Drama,action and some very funny humor which make for highly entertaining movie and what more could you ask for. Released by Anchor Bay Entertainment. **** Out Of *****
