        Brisk, snappy comedy adventure has a struggling actress (Mary McCormack) talking her nurse friend (Minnie Driver) into a blackmail scheme after they accidentally overhear a dirty deal go down on a scanner in London. They make a fun team together as they get in over their heads and I particularly enjoyed McCormack's mouthy character who doesn't always think her ideas through. Lots of familiar faces appear as the British thugs too. There are a few unexpectedly intense moments and more than a few loose ends (the mob reaction, the police investigation hunting for a blonde and a brunette), but mostly it's played with a wry smile..

        fun. like the spice girls on crack chasing the mafia around a town. it has minnie driver in it as a nurse. that's a wet dream from my pre-teen years taken care of! also it has danny dyer in it who's always engaging to watch. he plays a bit of a criminal fuck up. mary mccormack is great in her scenes where she's on the phone shouting demands at the crooks. oh yeah, this is girl power... just a shame it had the odd big hole in it... but y'know... it's silly enough you won't care

        <i>''Where'd you get this number?'' ''I looked it up in the book, under 'D' for dickhead.'' </i> A nurse eavesdrops with a friend on a cell phone conversation that describes a bank heist. She and the friend then conspire to blackmail the robbers for $2 million. <b>Minnie Driver</b>: Shannon <b>Mary McCormack</b>: Frances A nice little comedy that ranges from faint seriousness to bizarre to down right daft and funny. It's English which helps considerably, and loaded with humour dark and light. <i>High Heels & Low Lifes</i> has an amazing cast as well as the main two female roles Minnie & Mary there's Danny Dyer, Kevin McNally from the <i>Pirates</i> franchise, Mark Williams & Michael Gambon from the <i>Potter</i> series. A bank robbery that turns into Blackmail from two women that spirals into laughs galore. Still it's better taken in it's light hearted form and not taken seriously to enjoy the ride. A nice little dark Comedy.
