Aw, man, what a waste.
It's like, extra sad when a hot chick dies. When an ugly chick dies, it's like, their life probably sucked anyway, so it's no big deal.
A really fun and quite clever spin on the bank heist gone wrong
I wasn't expecting that much from this going in, but grew interested
very early as we were introduced to Patrick Dempsey's character as a
strange man with a very gifted, sort of neurotic mind. It does start
with two sets of robbers with very different backgrounds and
techniques. One a very professional veteran crew of highly skilled
robbers with a well laid out plan. The other was a pair of absolute
complete idiots without the slightest clue of what they are doing. One
team is after the vault the others after the ATM's. So a loose pact is
made between them. As for what comes next, let's say there are a lot of
very entertaining high jinx between the hostages and the robbers, there
is twists and turns and even more twists and turns as Dempsey's
character leads viewers all around with his witty and neurotic
behavior, he is the glue to the film and acts as the glue to the
"flypaper" as everyone gets stuck one by one, You won't be figuring out
what is happening next and the surprise ending is sure to leave you
with a smirk…………
