It was an ingenious enough plan: rob the Riviera Casino's count room during an Elvis impersonator convention. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. With $3.2 million at stake, the Marshals Service closing in, and single mom Cybil Waingrow and her son Jesse constantly confounding things, Michael must track down Murphy. Written by
When Quigley and Damitry are discussing Murphy's file, Quigley says Murphy along with 75 others were denounced in their case of being Elvis Presley's biological children. In his very next line Quigley says DNA testing eliminated 73 of the 75 outright. Damitry then asks him if Murphy was one of the inconclusive 2 remaining defendants, to which Quigley responds by showing a picture of Murphy's sideburns. This exchange implies that there were only 75 defendants total when the earlier statement points to 76. See more »
You know the golden rule: f*ck the gold. He who has a nickel-plated makes the rules.
OK, it a piece of trash. It is one of those guilty pleasures of mine. You know, the movie you are not supposed to like, but can't resist every time it comes on.
I mean, look at this cast: Kevin Costner from The BodyGuard, one of my favorites; Kurt Russell from Grindhouse; Christian Slater and Howie Long from Broken Arrow; Kevin Pollak from Hostage; Ice-T as the token rapper; and the best part of all, Courteney Cox, in a role that is so far from Friends that it is a classic.
This film is funny (Jon Lovitz), sweet (David Kaye), and has more action than you could ever ask for in a heist film. It has showgirls, an Elvis convention, and, I don't care if people diss Costner, Russell, and Cox, the film is just fun to watch.
