Movie Info

Three outlaws hit the road until the road hits back in this supercharged action thriller. Larry (Peter Fonda) is a stock car driver whose reckless nature has caused him a long run of bad luck. Larry and his friend and mechanic Deke (Adam Roarke) need money if they're to get a new car and get back in competition, so they map out a plan to hold up a grocery store after 150,000 dollars has been dropped off for payroll and working cash. The heist goes as planned, except for one little hitch -- Larry

What little narrative or characterization shows up on screen could barely fill an abridged short story.

The script, about small-timers who wished they were bigger, is soon totally undermined by Fonda's most complacent performance to date and Susan George's sub-Goldie Hawn antics.

The film is so bereft of emotion and so full of physical movement that it's possible this is a point that John Hough, the director, and the screenwriters wanted to make. It's a very small point to be made by such a noisy picture.

While this may sound simplistic, there's more to the film than simple American Heist and Chase thriller, of the Dukes of Hazzard style.

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is a classic heist chase picture driven by a somewhat dated premise and paper-thin characters.

There is practically no plot, and even less character development, but the script is based on a novel, most likely a thin one.

A worthy car film for the hot rod era...

An iconic outlaw classic of seventies speed cinema...

nothing new to anybody who's caught five minutes of an episode of The Dukes of Hazzard.

Audience Reviews for Dirty Mary Crazy Larry

The weed of crime bears bitter fruit in this 70's era car chase notable for real stunt work and "f**k authority!" aesthetics. Get yer teenage rebellion groove on.

What the film lacks in terms of character development and logic, it makes up for in its devotion to spectacular automobile mayhem. The sensation that the cars are actually driving at an intense speed is conveyed by the bobbing of the camera as it tries to keep the actors' faces in frame while shooting inside the moving vehicle.

What's the movie about? Outlaws on the run, ditzy hitch-hiker, pursuing lawman who does things his own way, battle of wits, a helicopter and a train.

Such a fun and entertaining movie. Great car chase(s) and fun performances. Even parts snappy and painful dialogue. It started off kind of grim but soon got enjoyably ridiculous. Deke was awesome and Peter Fonda was cool. Not Captain America (Easy Rider) cool, but still cool even if he drives NASCAR. Susan George was cute enough, but Mary was kind of annoying and those teeth were frightening. Vic Morrow was a crackhead and the Roddy McDowell cameo was nice too. I know the ending is supposed to be this big shocker but it just kind of made me laugh. A fun watch regardless.

Adam Roarke, who looks like Alec Baldwin, is one cool dude; Fonda's mean streak is just enough to tarnish his hippie anti-hero thing; Susan George tries to do an American accent & it's endearing
