* * out of 4.

The son (Barry Pepper) of a mobster (Dennis Hopper) and his best friend (Seth Green) lose half a million dollars that they were sent to pick up for Pepper's father. If Pepper is not able to get the money back, his father will be killed. So Pepper sends out for his friends in a desperate search of the money. However, the money is somewhere in a small very southern town and the towns citizens aren't exactly excitied about Pepper and company presence. Routine crime caper offers no surprises and features many situations that just simply don't make any sense and some rather horrid dialogue. Saving it from the pits are performances that are much better then the film deserves.

Rated R; Violence and Profanity.
