(2006) Good Girl, Bad Girl
It says on the case that the actress Julia Stinhoff is a "Popular German film star" whatever that means. Anyways, this film is lousy as it comes, for there are so many things wrong with this film that it would require a very long essay which I'm not even prepared to do that. Now I love action films that devoid CGI like the next guy but this film is preposterous. Besides the bad acting or the bad dubbing, at the first 5 minutes showcases a guy getting killed and we don't know how and it wasn't until Julia Stinhoff comes inside into his pad telling the club owner that she's quitting and that it was her last dance. So he asks her to fetch him a drink which requires her to break some ice from the ice pick, but without handing him a drink first she listens to him when he tells her to put it back in to the ice box, and it is then she sees his dead body. She gets surprised and panicky but as her boss is walking toward her, he uses a handkerchief to pick up the ice pick which was used to kill him with. And he blackmails her by saying that she doesn't continue to work for him that he is going to pin this murder on her, and sticks this pick into a locked cabinet or drawer. She then knocks him out with his briefcase full of diamonds and runs away, instead of trying to find the key to open the drawer where he stick the pick in. She does however grab his car keys and takes off with his car with the owners right hand goon going after her. As she's speeding, plenty of German police cars are chasing her but no sirens are heard just siren lights are seen. And they are crashing into one another. This has got to be one of the lousiest car chases I had ever seen - it's like the cars are controlled by a remote control since not a single officer came out after a crash. No reports or description had been made. There's also a corrupt police officer somewhere along the way. Once she escapes she succumbs to where her sister is residing in which also happens to be a church for nuns. In fact the audience may not know this but she happens to have a twin sister who looks like her except that she's all good while she's somewhat the opposite which is why it's called "Good Girl, Bad Girl". Back in the 30's and 40's this film may have worked for some people of an actress playing herself in different roles but peoples standards are high now and it's some of the worst acting imaginable where there were times when she's talking to her twin that there would be a pause first before a proper response and that it would be off. To describe this film is using the famous "The Simpsons" line which is 'talking about your pieces of crap".
