Another Day in Paradise ★★ 1998 (R)

Tulsa teen junkies Bobbie (Kartheiser) and Rosie (Wagner) team up with older junkie couple Mel (Woods) and Sidney (Griffith) and go from bad to worse. Mel's also a dealer and thief and is glad to add two would-be partners in crime to his and Sidney's traveling road to hell. Woods is all sly confidence while Griffith shows some seductive tough-chick grit and the younger twosome manage to hold their own nicely. Not a pic for the faint of heart or queasy of stomach. Based on the book by Eddie Little. 101m/C VHS, DVD . James Woods, Melanie Griffith, Vincent Kartheiser, Natasha Gregson Wagner, Paul Hipp, Brent Briscoe, Lou Diamond Phillips; D: Larry Clark; W: Christopher Landon, Stephen Chin; C: Eric Alan Edwards.
