Storyline

The Senator needs a Kidney. He's unwilling to wait for one to become available, and has let it be known he is willing to pay top dollar. Two hospital workers want to sell him one. But when they go to a suburban inn to make the deal they find themselves unintentionally interacting with drug dealers, Secret Service Agents, hit men, DEA, a vacationing family, and more. Very much a comedy of errors and mistaken identity.

This is... umm.... interesting....
5 November 2003 | by (Dixie, USA) – See all my reviews

Words can scarcely describe this movie. Loaded with ridiculous stereotypes, a silly plot, and poor music, this movie lacks in just about every category.

Don't be fooled by the IMDB credits. This is not a Michael Dorn movie. He's a secondary character in the grand scheme.

Also listed in the Credit's is an actor named "Prince" - which makes me wonder if it's the same artist formerly known as.... Then again, I'm not sure this movie is worth watching just for that.

Big summary... bunch of teams... one has kidneys... one has $35,000.... one has an "Illegal Substance".... and one has $350,000. Add some confusion and mixups as to who needs to meet who, revenge on being taken, and such, and you end up with this mess of a movie.

Given a choice, I'd pass on this movie.
