The movie follows the story of two friends, Hattie and Lolly, who work as waitresses in a greasy spoon diner but have bigger aspirations. They have a plan to steal a large sum of money from Lolly's gangster boyfriend, Benny.

The movie begins with Lolly being taken by Benny to his mansion, where he asks her to steal a diamond necklace from a wealthy woman next door. Lolly agrees but soon realizes that the necklace is worthless and decides to steal Benny's money instead. She enlists Hattie's help, and the two come up with a plan to rob Benny. Along the way, they also involve Hattie's estranged husband, Clive, and an eccentric pal of Lolly's, Roy.

The film takes place mostly in and around Los Angeles, and the characters are stereotypical of the time and place. Hattie and Lolly are both aspiring actresses, and Clive is a struggling musician.

The movie's soundtrack is a highlight and features a range of popular songs from the 80s by artists such as The Bangles, Los Lobos, and The Plimsouls. The music complements the story and the setting, adding to the overall mood of the movie.

Overall, Sticky Fingers is a light-hearted comedy with an enjoyable plot and an entertaining cast. The film's charm is in its simplicity, as it is a fun and easy watch with good-natured humor and decent performances.
