9 October 2002 | by (indiana) – See all my reviews

With the cast listed above how could you not watch? Not a great movie but very entertaining. It's easy to put yourself into the character of John Cusack. What would you do if you found 1.2 million dollars in the middle of the street? The film also does a good job of displaying the hardships of being on the run and doing and not doing the right thing. I mean towards the end I was stressed out and I was sitting in bed watching the movie. Decent flick, worth a watch for fans of any of the above talent. It's laways good to remember that movies have come along ways since the early 90's too. 6/10
