Storyline

After a woman cop is shot in a burglary attempt that kills her fiancé and wounds another fellow officer, the two officers join a security agency where large amounts of cash are stored. A criminal team captures the agency and begins to break into the company vaults. Led by Mr. Rabbit and Mr. Pig, a crazed killer, the two hold the staff in the agency hostage while the rest of the team work on the vault. Geary works to get messages out to her former police cohort, who is a field agent for the firm, and fights the criminals psychologically and ultimately physically.

Not bad....
22 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't rent this movie, and I doubt it ever came out in the theaters, but if it's 4 in the morning and you're a little drunk and it comes on, give it a chance. If only to see how far Andrew McCarthy has fallen and to see how no one's career went anywhere after this movie. Fine 4AM flick though.
