Hiding Out
20 July 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

The likable Cryer stars as a young stockbroker set to testify against the mob who runs for his life when an assasin is hot on his trail. He assumes the guise of a high school student and encounters clashes between his "establishment" nature and his new "high school" facade. Entertaining, but far-fetched comedy!
