Dirty Tricks

Loading...
Part bawdy bedroom farce, part zany crime caper. The story about a charming underachiever on the run from the law. Sure, he's manipulative, money-grubbing, and completely amoral.

When Karen meets an untimely demise, a plodding police detective gets involved, and things take a decidedly dicey turn.
