Aged Bunny O'Hare has just lost everything, the Bank of New Mexico which has foreclosed on her mortgage and demolished her house. What possessions of hers that were not repossessed by creditors were destroyed in the demolition. Bunny feels she cannot ask her adult children, Ad and Lulu, for help, as they depend on her. In reality, Ad and Lulu are ungrateful and selfish, wallowing in financial holes of their own making. The one person who seems to provide her some help in at least offering to drop her off wherever she may need or want to go is the man who gutted the house of the plumbing fixtures to sell in Mexico, while she doesn't know that he's really just trying to lose her anywhere.

I recently had the immense pleasure of meeting Ernest Borgnine at New Jersey's Chiller Con, and he looked and sounded great at 91 years young. This inspired my friend and I to watch some Borgnine films, and he suggested this rather obscure yet terrible piece of garbage (though he meant well, and I certainly didn't mind giving it a shot). It's an unfunny "comedy" where Bette Davis shacks up in a trailer with former crook Borgnine and they decide to dress up as hippies in order to rob banks. And I don't mean just once, but several times, in the same idiotic costumes. And these banks never seem to grow wise. It's boring and uneven, and the ever-vain Jack Cassidy is a pain as a stuffy lieutenant trying to crack the case. I don't claim to have seen all of Bette Davis' greatest films at this point, but I've seen enough of her finest work to be comfortable in declaring that BUNNY O'HARE has got to be in the running as her worst film. * out of ****
