Storyline

A chain of events starts with the arrival of a mysterious suitcase in Miami. Arthur Herk, a corrupt business owner, wants to get his hands on the case. At the same time, two hit men want him whacked. Tired of his constant fixation on drinking and television, Herk's wife Anna and daughter Jenny decide to find new love interests in divorced dad Eliot Arnold and his son Matt. To add more complication, two thieves decide to steal the case and lead a Miami police team and two FBI agents on a wild goose chase that ends inside the Miami airport terminal.

Awesome movie, if you haven't seen it, see it.

This movie is excellent, funny, hillarious. It should be rated alot higher then the 6.4 rating it has right at this moment. This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a couple years. I bought this movie on amazon.com before I had ever seen, I am glad I did. My hunch was correct, this is a great movie, very worthy of owning. How anyone could watch this movie and not laugh out loud, huge, rolling in the isle laughs, is beyond me. Johnny Knoxville and Tom Sizemore we're just hillarious, Tim Allen great as usual. Dennis Farina's line, Looks like we got a couple gators fans, was just totally hillarious. He was classically funny as usual. All in all very funny movie all around. I loved it, I may watch it again tonight.
