"Boodle" is illicit money, which is the objective of the young couple at the heart of this loose, uneven crime-comedy by Jean-Pierre Mocky. The couple pull off a robbery of a supermarket and escape with the cash, but their dreams of a life in the sun are dashed by an arrogant man who knows what they did and demands the money for himself. It turns out he is a police inspector also looking toward early retirement, and with an expensive wife at home. As these unlikely associates wrangle over the loot, the story segues into a fairly predictable path toward the final accounting.
