An odd FBI agent named Joak threatens Wiley with more jail time if Wiley doesn't help sting Kate.

I saw this film about five years ago on the TV and loved it, then saw it again about a year later and loved it even more, and despite frantic efforts couldn't find a tape to record it on. Couldn't believe no-one I met had seen it or even heard of it, but now I find out it was made for TV and so probably didn't get seen by half as many people as it deserved. A fantastic, hilarious comedy thriller in the style of Foul Play or The Big Lebowski (though far better than the former and nothing like as good as the latter) - a bunch of wacky characters running about madly doing crazy stuff in some kind of convoluted plot involving crime, deception, coincidence and mistaken identity. Not really worth outlining the plot, just go along for the ride and try to figure out who's conning who, who's not telling the whole truth, who's going to come out on top...or alternatively just have a laugh at the general insanity. The wedding scene is one of the funniest I've seen outside of Raising Arizona. Watch out for that man with no toes...
