Storyline

Two teens impulsively decide to rob a bank, a la Bonnie and Clyde. Quickly they find themselves in over their heads as they are forced to take a bank full of hostages and the FBI are at the door. Hostages include a heroin addicted Gulf War vet, the pesky bank manager, a gruff old man, a calm bank employee, and a helpful young woman. The head FBI man must sort through the psychology of all the participants to try to keep the events from escalating. Underlying in all of this is the pure adolescence of the two who initiate the trouble. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

great acting
27 August 2000 | by (Colorado Springs, CO) – See all my reviews

This movie contained the best child acting I have ever seen (by Mischa Barton). That alone makes it worth the watch. It's also a great debut for Cameron van Hoy, and make a very sharp point about our world, in a humorous way... something that's very hard to do but is done very well. I may be alone in this, but I think it's one of the best films I've seen.
