His ex-wife asks the unsuccessful gambler and inventor Harrison for a small favor: to get her a parcel from a friend's apartment - without telling him what's in it. Suddenly he finds himself assaulted by villains and shortly after even under suspect of murder. The inexperienced P.I. Rachel is hired by an unknown party to rid him of the parcel - but soon befriends him. Together they try to figure out what kind of game is being played.

Wasted Acting Squeezes This Movie Into Obscurity.
10 June 2003 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

THE SQUEEZE is a pathetic excuse for a film, let alone a comedy. Michael Keaton stars with Rae Dawn Chong in this awful film about a guy who gets caught up in a crime rap of some sorts. People would rather go play in the park instead of watching this pure waste of celluloid. A wasted cast and a tedious script easily makes this one of the most worthless flops in cinema history.
