Pretty good!
2 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband knows how much I like Treat Williams, and found this videotape at a flea market for 2 bucks, and he came home with it and we watched it, and both of us actually really liked it! It was a lot better then I thought it would be.

Drama mixed with a little humor, Treat plays John MacDonald, who goes to Saudi Arabia to get the project-construction deal, and keeps getting let down or ticked off about it while he is there..well, after being there for so long, and things not going the way he planned, he tries to leave, but can't, because of their laws, it is up to the Shiek to let him have his passport back, which he refuses, so after trying again to do right by making this housing project, he gets duped again, and decided with a help of an American friend he met there, they decide to put him in a cargo box to get him home on a plane...

This is based on a true story, and was actually pretty interesting.
