The scene where Bobby (Saul Rubinek) decks a seller, for interrupting his concentration on searching the coins with Carl (Gailard Sartain), was improvised and accidental. Saul Rubinek really got ticked at the bystander for interrupting their scene so he actually slugged him. Then realizing what he did, he took off with Gailard. Director Howard Deutch thought the shot they filmed was too hilarious and decided to keep it in the film. See more »
The list of coins shown in the printout during the opening credits are relatively common coins and as described with major flaws, would be a collection worth only a few thousand dollars-a far cry from the $1.5 million used in the storyline. The $20 gold piece shown in closeup during the credits is far from an un-circulted example, so it is a coin worth little more than the price of an ounce of gold. Also, if they removed the coins from their new PCGS holders and sold them "raw", whatever their value, they would be worth substantially less than as "certified" in the their holders. See more »
An estranged son(Macaulay Culkin) tries to blackmail his ex-con father(Ted Danson) into spending time with him. Danson and two cronies pull of a rare coin heist and then Culkin arrives wanting to share father and son time. The coins are used to blackmail the ponytailed Danson into pleasing the obnoxious Culkin. HOME ALONE(1990) and MY GIRL(1991)were at least worth watching. This is neither funny or interesting. Danson fares well in his arrogant way. Gleene Headly is not believable as a detective. Also in the cast are:Gailard Sartain, Saul Rubinek and Hector Elizondo. Geared for the grammar school set.
