Goofs

Henry has a good and clear chance of escaping from Bobby in one scene and doesn't make any attempts to do it. 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. Bobby's attention goes to the other guy, Henry could have left the place and run away with Charlene cause there was nothing holding him there except his shocked state. See more »

Quotes

Bobby: Alright, who's gonna share the bed with me? Huh? You gotta make a decision. I've spend the last three years in prison so... don't make a difference to me. I prefer a woman but a man will do it, we fix.
[laughs]
Bobby: It's a little joke. You two stay on the floor. And if it's any comfort to you, Henry, you're not my type.

Good B movie.
10 March 2002 | by (Gulfport, MS) – See all my reviews

Very good B movie. The actors were well-cast and believable in their roles. Of course, I'm a big Steven Bauer fan and he looked so good in this movie!! Edward Herrman is a very good and (I think) highly underrated actor. The plot was pretty predictable but it was entertaining - not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.
