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

Doc (Alec Baldwin) and Carol McCoy (Kim Basinger) are a married criminal couple. Rudy Travis (Michael Madsen) comes to them with a job. A drug lord wants to break out his nephew from American prison. In reality, he just wants to kill him. They bring him to Mexico. Rudy abandons Doc who is captured by the Mexican police. Carol uses all her sexual wilds to get mob boss Jack Benyon (James Woods) to help get Doc released. Jim Deer Jackson (David Morse) is Benyon's right hand thug. Benyon puts Doc in charge of a dog track robbery. He's forced to lead newcomer Frank Hansen (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and reunite with Rudy. Rudy tries to double-cross him again. He shoots Rudy who survives. Rudy first takes the Carveys hostage and then takes the wife Fran Carvey (Jennifer Tilly) as his partner.
Relationship complications complicates this violent crime relationship movie. This is a remake of the 1972 Sam Peckinpah movie. Real life husband and wife Basinger and Baldwin inject problematic relationship flow. I understand the attempt but it's hard to fall for this couple. They are an old married couple who is just as ready to fight as to make passionate love. It's movie life come true and nobody will cry over a divorce. The violence is fitting for a Peckinpah remake but others have taken up the mantle and surpassed it. There are some interesting aspects to this movie but also enough problems to sink it.
