National Lampoon's Gold Diggers

American independent filmmaker Gary Preisler makes his film debut as a writer/director with the black comedy National Lampoon's Gold Diggers. Twentysomethings Calvin Menhoffer (Will Friedle) and Leonard Smallwood (Chris Owen) get arrested for the robbery of two sixtysomething women, Doris (Louise Lasser) and Betty (Renee Taylor). The ladies decide to drop the charges and invite the crooks to their space-age mod Beverly Hills mansion. Cal and Lenny come up with a plan to marry the women for their money in hopes that they die within the year. It turns out that Doris and Betty are actually broke and they're planning to marry the boys, kill them, and cash in on their insurance money. After several unsuccessful murder attempts, all four characters end up robbing Doris and Betty's rich uncle. Originally titled Lady Killers but changed to avoid confusion with the Coen brothers' remake of the classic 1955 film, Gold Diggers was shown at the 2003 CineVegas Film Festival.
