Keith Carradine is wonderful!
12 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've always thought of him as a great actor, he's just brilliant in this movie even though the story is a little lame. If you are a KC fan, watch the movie, it's definitely getting a 10/10 from me just because KC looks so adorable in it! I loved the voice he did when he called the hotel pretending to be someone else! And then there was that jumping in the lake scene, cute! Short summary of the movie:

Mac is a limo driver. After watching his parents die when he was 11 and still blaming himself for it when someone paid him to take a package into his own house he has never forgiven himself, but he did see the killer. Now years later whilst driving he sees the killer and comes up with a plan to ruin the killer. He becomes a security guard at the killer's casino, but whilst Mac is planning to pull off a heist he gets involved with the casino banker, but even she isn't who she appears to be....
