Movie Info

Lorna (Gina Gershon, SHOWGIRLS, P.S. I LOVE YOU) is a strong-willed Texas woman who's had enough of her untrustworthy husband Dale's (Val Kilmer, TOP GUN, BATMAN FOREVER) criminal acts and lack of husbandry. Fed up, she enlists the help of her old friend, Tiny (Kelli Giddish, NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), to help her figure out what to do with Dale after his latest double-cross involving the theft of $100,000 from a bank. As the girls brainstorm for a "neat" solution, they medicate

I recommend 'Breathless' for non-squeamish thriller fans, but the amount of blood and gore on display may be way beyond what even those brave viewers can imagine.

No kidding. If you chained-smoked half as much as the plotting ladies in this twisty dramedy, you'd be hyperventilating, too.

Could be watchable because of Gina Gershon's mildly interesting manipulative and ruthless damsel-in-distress role.

Now Val Kilmer is just in a race with Ray Liotta to see who can get the oldest and the fattest the fastest. It's like the tagline to "Alien Vs Predator;" whoever wins...we lose.

Far more gruesome, and definitely packing more surprise punches than your average, everyday thriller.

Audience Reviews for Breathless

When Tiny(Kelli Giddish) visits her friend Lorna(Gina Gershon) in her trailer, she is shocked to discover Lorna holding a gun on her no-good tied-up husband Dale(Val Kilmer). Lorna suspects him of being involved in a bank robbery in a nearby county that netted $100,000 and would kindly like to know the location of the loot. All questions are moot after Lorna forgets to set the safety on her gun. Enter Sheriff Cooley(Ray Liotta).

While it would probably not be out of the question to think of "Breathless" as little more than an extended episode of "Tales from the Crypt," it is also fairly entertaining due to some good work from its principal actors. And while the graphic violence contains the odd dismemberment, the movie is not really sadistic, either. But while I always appreciate a crafty scheme, the one at the heart of this story is a little too perfect, like the one on the other side of the state in "The Bridge," both serving as reminders how writers, like sabermetricians, can forget about the human factor now and again.
