Bad boy and bad girl. Melissa McCarthy could play her. And he? Actor in V for Vendetta.

Judging from their pictures I would'nt be surprised if they've eaten it.

Ah, the comments never let you down.

These two came up with a pretty clever scheme for robbing houses- they knew who was out of town, for how long, and that the dogs were conveniently boarded elsewhere. And so far all the commenters have to contribute is essentially LOL FATTIES!

Tunbridge - but they got busted and so far, we haven't ;-) Really, they were idiotically complacent. Park a high value stolen car on the street??? Become a felon w/nothing to show for it?

Maybe they saw the Norwegian movie "Headhunter."

This is the story of an executive recruiter who, when interviewing high-net-worth clients, casually throws in a question about the client's art collection. If that sounds promising, he throws in a question about their vacation plans, followed by a question about their dogs.

He and his partner in crime -- a security guard who has the inside track on getting into his clients' mansions undetected -- are going merrily along until they mess with the wrong client. An ex-Special Ops type who has many tricks up his sleeve.

When this ex-soldier figures out the recruiter's scheme, he engages a prostitute to fondle the recruiter's hair while her hands are coated with a gel that has emits a GPS signal on this guy's whereabouts.

If that sounds bizarre, that is just the beginning. The recruiter, at a crucial point in the drama, figures out what she was doing with her hands in his hair!

This movie is unintentionally hilarious all the way through, something that comes along rarely -- like "Plan 9 from Outer Space."
