Tim Curry stars as a deceitful TV evangelist whose station is taken over by a band of dim-witted criminals in the zany, offbeat comedy “Pass the Ammo.” The subject matter is as topical and timely as “Wall Street” and “No Way Out” were when they were released.

However, this film lacks the impact of those films and winds up being implausible and underdeveloped. Also stars Bill Paxton, Linda Kozlowski and Annie Potts. Rated R.
