Will they put Bart Simpson in the parade tomorrow?
They will but Bart Simpson in the parade tomorrow if you go to sleep right now.

I have rarely seen a more contrived movie. Aside from the entirely unnecessary butchy female cop character, and the abruptly terminated storyline about the psychiatrist's dead girlfriend, and the oddly well-informed ex-cons with their beyond-the-state-of-the-art surveillance equipment, I hardly know what to say.
But I will begin with the 6 digit code fiasco. Did I miss something? Or how in the heck would ANYONE know that there was a code in the first place? And supposing the code element was believable, how would the bad guys have gotten word about it?
Amazing hearing that woman cop had, to pick out gunshots from how-far-away as she boated in. And who was she talking to on the phone at the morgue? That was bizarre and sort of out in the middle of nowhere. And what was her purpose in the movie, anyway?
And who called the cops when the wife killed the guy with her knitting needle?
And why was that poor young woman being kept in a filthy hospital room?
And where did Oliver Platt's storyline disappear to?
This was mindless entertainment for those nights when there is absolutely nothing else to do. It gets a "4" from me, but only because of Brittany Murphy. All 4 points are hers.
