Made on short ends of film left over from The Bed You Sleep In, Frameup is a freewheeling road comedy about a pair of dimwitted lovers on the run. Ricky-Lee (Howard Swain), a two-bit criminal prone to spouting lengthy, obscenity-laced soliloquies, meets Beth-Ann (Nancy Carlin), an airheaded waitress with a weakness for romance novels, at the diner where she slings coffee. Immediately smitten, she joins him on a meandering journey across the Pacific Northwest -- punctuated by the occasional robbery -- and on into California, where the couple dream of heading to the sunny beaches of Los Angeles. Ricky-Lee's ineptitude catches up with him eventually, however, and their trip is cut short when a convenience store robbery goes awry.
