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
The song playing from the 8-track tape at the beginning of the movie was a number 1 hit in April of 1973 for the group Tony Orlando and Dawn. The back up singers known as Dawn featured Telma Hopkins who would go on to become a well known actress for her numerous television sit-com roles in the 80s and 90s. One of which was Bosom Buddies (1980-1982) featuring a then unknown Tom Hanks. See more »

I've read many bad reviews of this movie but I have to say, I do not agree at all. This movie was hilarious, entertaining, and had an interesting plot. Who doesn't love when someone gets into a crazy situation with a bunch of strangers? The actors were all funny and a delight to watch on screen. The whole hostage situation was extremely fun to watch and easy to get invested into. I could go on forever about this wonderful movie but you have to see it for yourself to really understand. I really urge everyone to watch this film. It's even on netflix! You can watch it with your friends, family, or just by yourself. Have a good time!
