Storyline

A gigolo, a former professional athlete, a spoiled heiress, a champion female figure skater, a live band, and three desperate men are all brought together under the same roof, for a party thrown by a young, hot-shot, corporate attorney. The three desperate men are good people forced into crime by their own personal circumstances. Knowing that the heiress will be present, they crash the party and hold dozens of guests hostage. They demand ransom from the heiress' father, a powerful publishing magnate, warning him that if he goes to the police, he will have the blood of countless innocent victims on his hands. This being Los Angeles, of course, no one at the party is really "innocent". The former professional athlete and the gigolo are morally corrupt men whom circumstances force into heroic behavior. They courageously attempt to foil the kidnapers' plans and liberate the guests held hostage. Unfortunately, no one at the party turns out to be quite what they say, and everyone has their ...

This Movie Had a lot of Potential

But, as the people who have watched it know, this movie was dreadfully boring. I don't know why, some scenes were genuily funny, but as I left the movie theatre I felt jipped paying my five dollars. Some witty remarks here, some funny sub-text there, etc etc, the problem was in between all the laughter was the most boring drivel imaginable. Lots of scenes added nothing to the plot and was plain boring as well. The film just dragged on and on so much I had the strangest urge to leave the theatre yet for some reason, I stayed till I viewed the confusing ending which just puzzled me some more seeing as how it made no sense.
