Joseph C. Phillips,
While they're on vacation in the Southwest, Rae finds out her man Michael spent their house money on a classic car, so she dumps him, hitching a ride to Vegas for a flight home. A kid promptly steals Michael's car, leaving him at the Zip & Sip, a convenience store. Three bumbling robbers promptly stage a hold up. Two take off with the cash stranding the third, with a mysterious crate, just as the cops arrive. The robber takes the store hostage. As incompetent cops bring in a SWAT team and try a by-the-book rescue, Michael has to keep the robber calm, find out what's in the crate, aid the negotiations, and get back to Rae. The Stockholm Syndrome asserts its effect. Written by

What a difference five years make! Judging by the performance of Jamie Foxx in this comedy, one wouldn't have thought he had the range to play the title role in "Ray". This movie will not add anything to his resume, that's for sure. As directed by Steve Rash, the movie looks as though it either had some production problems, or the studio lost faith in this project.
The movie has a flat feeling. Most of the jokes don't work and all those familiar faces one sees have done better work before. What's even worse, the two stars, Jamie Foxx and Nia Long, don't show much chemistry between them. In fact, Ms. Long is only seen occasionally. Barry Corbin, Julie Hagerty, Eduarado Yanez, Roselyn Sanchez, Jake Busey, John Cullum, are seen in minor roles that don't add much to the picture.
