Violet & Daisy 0.0 stars

No, not the Hilton sisters, America’s once loved and sadly forgotten Siamese twins. Instead, Geoffrey Fletcher’s violent and ditzy Violet & Daisy gives us a pair of blue-eyed teenage hit-girls (32-year-old Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan, basically reprising her role as Hanna) who are assigned the job of whacking Michael (James Gandolfini), a pathetic target eager to avail himself of their services. They arrive on the job riding a tricycle. Michael winds up baking the girls cookies. The animal-loving chicks avert their aim so the shooting of a human being won't harm a caged parrot. C'mon, Fletch. Give us something to work with other than material best left for the pages of Teen Beat. Add to it a soundtrack pulsating with the ironic use of popular songs and a third act stab at "Love me, Daddy" pathos, and you have every reason to avoid this movie. 2011.
