In this deliciously twisted, girl-meets-girl-and-falls-in-love thriller, ex-con Corky (Gina Gershon) is hired to renovate an apartment.

She meets Violet (Jennifer Tilly), who lives in the building with her money-laundering (literally, in one scene) boyfriend Ceasar (Joe Pantoliano), and itís lust at first sight.

The women get together (literally, in one rather graphic but shadowy scene) and decide to rip off $2 million in mob money from Ceasar.

As soon as they get the money, their perfect plan starts falling apart and it becomes a whom-can-you-trust showdown.

Like so many other rob-the-mob movies, the plan seems pretty far-fetched, and the ending isnít much of a surprise. But if you like your films sprinkled liberally with sex, violence and humor, then youíre bound to like "Bound."

Contains nudity, adult language and a few especially graphic scenes of violence.
