Charlene warns Bobby about the guy carrying a huge sum of money to which Bobby plans to rob him in the bathroom. He says to Charlene to stay in the car and ready to move while he and Henry will follow the man to the restroom. There, Bobby enters into a huge fight with the money guy while Henry just keeps watching in panic.

Not so bad...
15 June 2001 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Arguably, this movie has nothing that you have not seen many times and in much better versions, with much better actors. But the script is descent, concrete and without major leaps or vacuums. It is a non-offensive company, if you have 2 times to kill. If you have not, however, you can bypass it without fear that you are loosing something important.
