It was a good idea...
23 April 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now, this isn't necessarily a bad movie... If you're a fan of Michael Madsen, I'd suggest you check this film out. But if you're not... move on.

Basically, the premise is a happy little family vacation goes awry after a bank robber takes them and their RV hostage. Not a bad basic idea, but for some reason that I can't figure out, it doesn't work. The good idea for a movie goes wrong somewhere, and the end product is not as great of a movie as it should be.
