Nick is a struggling dentist in Canada. A new neighbor moves in, and he discovers that it is Jimmy "The Tulip" Teduski. His wife convinces him to go to Chicago and inform the mob boss who wants Jimmy dead.
In one scene, the characters played by Carrie Preston and Bodhi Elfman mention the animated sitcom "The Simpsons." Bodhi Elfman is the nephew of Danny Elfman, who composed the theme song for that series. Also, Alec Baldwin and then-wife Kim Basinger guest voiced themselves in a season 10 episode of "The Simpsons" entitled 'When You Dish Upon a Star,' which was originally broadcast 7 months after this film's release.

This movie has one huge problem: *its basic premise makes no sense at all*. Killing the kid is in absolutely nobody's interest. His codebreaking skill would be of immeasurable value to the very people who are trying to kill him, while safeguarding the code without killing him would be fairly straightforward. This is so obvious that it essentially ruins the whole movie.
The rest of the movie is OK if you ignore that problem. The performances are generally good, and Miko Hughes is excellent as Simon. There is nothing here you haven't seen a dozen times before, but it's generally well done. It's not worth making any real effort to see this movie, but you probably won't have a bad time if you do.
