It's the charming wit and screen presence of McCormack that saves this picture from being a total mess.

Driver and McCormack make appealing heroines, and Kevin McNally and Michael Gambon are gratifyingly menacing villains.

A mostly smart attempt to resurrect Ealing Studios-style hijinks.

Cute, fluffy fun, completely divorced from reality and proud of it.

A refreshingly engaging British movie that isn't afraid to go all out for laughs and thrills, leaving its social conscience behind.

You can't help feel that the director settled for smirks when he could've had bellylaughs.

Won't leave audiences with too many bad memories--mostly because it evaporates from memory as soon as the closing crawl begins.

With the tiny I.Q.s of the characters in this film, it wouldn't have been much harder for the likes of Laverne and Shirley to pull off the same joyless stunt.

Distinctly low on laughs and, despite a running time of only 86 minutes, far outstays its welcome.

A shrill and ultimately annoying tale.

Like the designer suits Driver wears despite her character's meager earnings, High Heels and Low Lifes isn't about reality; it's playing dress- up.

High Heels' main problem is that Smith can't seem to decide whether the movie is an over-the-top comedy or a sassy action film.

Director Mel Smith uses the same silly sense of comedy that he did in Bean.

There are, however, no highs in High Heels and Low Lifes. Just lows.

Reality goes right out the window in this silly shoot-'em-up, which never gets quite silly enough.
