Storyline

Two small-time thieves come together as a bizarre comic duo in a quest to make their childhood dreams come true. In a limousine stuffed with cash stolen from the mob, they take off for Miami, where they plan to fly to a safe haven in Costa Rica. On the road they pick up a singer/chauffeur plus two unlikely women they meet in a Holiday Inn. Then the fun begins! A zany, hilarious, screwball road comedy about sex, money and vitamins, with an exceptional cast who deliver comic performances of manic perfection! Written by Rainbow

User Reviews

One of the great "scam" movies of all time.
24 November 1999 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

Fascinating characters, a beliveable rip-off plan, and a mixture of screwy but all-too-real personalities make Sitting Ducks a perfect "scam" movie. It's funny, exciting, a little sexy, and full of surprises. I've watched it over and over and will be watching it for a long, long time.
