Bobby goes to the FBI to trade what he knows for a new identify for himself, his wife, a son who's a high-school wiz kid aiming for Harvard, and a young daughter. The four of them spend an intense week with a federal marshal who coaches them in their new identities before they establish a household, without money or a resume, in Seattle. Bobby's wife learns that they're penniless, Bobby is still trying to figure out who ratted on him, their son wants to leave and take his chances in Boston, and their daughter is traumatized. Can they work it out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Outstanding...
17 March 2003 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

What a great movie.. Tom Sizemore did a star display of his character and i think the rest of his family in this movie was great too.. I really think forest whitaker is one of the best actors in the world... I think he is a pure genious in the acting business.. The music was great in this movie too but the acting Tops it off.
