This is a delightful film about four guys who just received the ransom money for a kidnapping that they pulled off. Headed by Caesar Romero in a classic performance as the gang's leader this is a must see. The best part of the film starts a bit earlier as Rochelle Hudson and Edward Norris arrive at the gang's house for refuge because their car broke down close by in a torrential rainstorm. Hudson and Norris have their baby daughter and their dog with them. After retiring for the night the kidnappers return with the ransom money and hold Hudson and Norris captives and then the fun begins. It's a typical story that might not sound interesting but you'll love it if you watch it! All the acting is great, however, in my estimation, this film would have been a dud if it weren't for Hudson, the dog, and Norris. Romero even got some dancing in even though this movie isn't a musical. Hope you catch it.
