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.

Goofs

The two F-16s fly with their gear down. When scrambled, an F-16 pilot will retract his gear as soon as the plane is airborne. This is not an error. Jet aircraft fly much faster than the turboprop passenger plane. In order to stay behind the plane, they would be configured to fly as slowly as possible, thus lowering the landing gear to increase drag. See more »

Brilliant comedy
9 January 2005 | by (Odessa, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Perfect comedy of situations.

Better then book, as it makes better use of supporting actors.

Amazing movie, made in old style of comedies. Must-see for all lovers of the comedies.

It was most likely harmed by by airport security scene which was found politically incorrect after the 9/11, but its a comedy so I do not see a problem.

I would give it 12 out of 10.

Very nice review in Russian located here:
