An aging alcoholic cop is assigned the task of escorting a witness from police custody to a courthouse 16 blocks away. There are, however, chaotic forces at work that prevent them from making it in one piece.
Two convicts, one charismatic (Willis) and the other a hypochondriac (Thornton), break out of prison and immediately start a bank robbing spree, kidnapping bank managers, spending the night with their families, then going with the managers in the morning to rob the banks. Using a dim-witted stunt man as their getaway driver and lookout, the three successfully pull off several jobs (even gaining the attention of a television show about American criminals), and become known as "The Sleepover Bandits." Things are going great until the bank managers begin to realize that the robbers are non-violent and therefore no threat to them or their employees, changing the game for the Bandits. To add to the complications, a bored & unhappy housewife (Blanchett) ends up in the hands of the criminals, and begins to have romantic feelings for both Willis and Thornton, causing a sticky love triangle.

Hans Zimmer was the only choice for the music composing. However, Zimmer was just finishing Hannibal (2001) and Pearl Harbor (2001) at the time in London, and he already committed himself to Black Hawk Down (2001), which was recorded in the US. Barry Levinson said that he would move the film for a later release, waiting for the German composer, since they are good friends since Rain Man (1988). Zimmer politely refused it. See more »

What a mess! I was very diappointed at the end because I expected a a good entertaining thriller but not at all! The film never get suspense and Willis / Thornton acted like two clowns in a circus. For all fans wishing action and thrills avoid this one and don´t waste your precious time. Save your money for another movie. I gave 4/10 !
