Storyline

Bill Firpo has managed to stay honest, but can't help but be dragged into things by his larcenous brothers, the clever Dave and the kleptomaniac Alvin. When the three find a bank so easy to rob that they can't resist, the only question is whether or not they can get out of town before the big snowstorm hits. While the three brothers run around town with their stolen loot, they are beseiged with the kindness of the townfolk that might just set them on the path of rightousness.

Trivia

To film the river scenes, crews had to remove large ice blocks from the Grand River in Elora, Ontario, as the river was frozen in mid-winter. Local residents were worried that the ice blocks would flow down river and wipe out the town's landmark "the Tooth Of Time," a large rock that sits in the middle of a waterfall. This forced crews to expend extra effort breaking up the ice blocks into small pieces. See more »

Goofs

When Bill is waiting in the car and he sees Alvin stealing money out of a stores cash register, a man with dreadlocks is walking left. When Bill runs out of the car, the same man is seen walking left again. See more »

No no no It is GOOD
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is quite funny, you don't have to be a fan of Dana carvey or anything too. It was a good story and has funny plots throughout the movie as well. The guy who reviewed this before is wrong and is a typical this movie sucks that movie sucks critic. Jon Lovitz, Nicholas Cage, and Dana Carvey, are all hilarious in this flick and also just did a great job acting. These were the good Ole days and not the new days where its just stupid fart humor, and no class with the comedy, just sick and gross things. This had cache and goes down as a very funny movie. Go rent or buy it , its cheap and worth the cash spent. Toodles
