Doc McCoy is put in prison because his partners chickened out and flew off without him after exchanging a prisoner with a lot of money. Doc knows Jack Benyon, a rich "business"-man, is up to something big, so he tells his wife (Carol McCoy) to tell him that he's for sale if Benyon can get him out of prison. Benyon pulls some strings and Doc McCoy is released again. Unfortunately he has to cooperate with the same person that got him to prison. Written by

While at the dump, Doc is toying with a radio control car which is obviously a Volkswagen. In the original, this is the same type of vehicle in which Steve and Ali are setting as they converse during their dump scene. See more »

Let me help you with that.
No, it's okay.
No, no. It's a big bag.
[the man puts the bag into the locker, close and locks it]

There ya go.
Glad to help.

A couple robbed successfully a bank and escaped from being caught by the justice.
Remakes are normally worse than the first versions, but this one is the exception. I saw the first version of "Getaway" twice starred by Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw, which was OK to me, but this new one with Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger is more credible in its plot and also in acting. Basinger made more credible the reason to betray his husband, Baldwin made more credible the reason why he stayed with his wife. In general both acted well and perhaps much better than McQueen and McGraw.
