“Deidra & Laney Rob a Train” by Sydney Freeland (USA, 2017)

Deidra & Laney Rob a Train by Sydney Freeland (2017)

A weak script, but the light tone, a nice cast, some good dialogues and good music make it fun to watch
SPOILER: The engaging tone of the movie comes mainly from the fact that all the personages are on the side of the thieves and help them get away with it, except the detective who ends up being the bad guy.
