Out of Control (3 Stars)

This is a Canadian film made for television in 1998. Obviously the film's title wasn't copyrighted, because there are at least four other films with the same name.

Lena is the girlfriend of a member of the mafia in Pittsburgh. When her boyfriend is making a large money delivery for his boss she drives away with the money. After a long drive she stops for a meal in a small town called Bilton, where she falls in love with the owner of a gas station.

Not all films can be masterpieces. I don't say that as a criticism. Some films are made with the intention of being rated as great films. This is obvious from the budget, the cinematography or the famous stars in the cast. Not all films intended to be great films hit the mark, but it's apparent that it was their goal. Other films set their sights lower. Like this one. It was made with a small budget, it's mildly entertaining and it has a couple of plot twists to keep the viewer hooked until the end. It's not intended to be watched more than once. Maybe I'm unfair rating it so low. It's a success in what it set out to accomplish. It's now out of print, but it's available to be watched on Netflix.

Jayne Heitmeyer is excited by money.
