Both stories run parallel to each other in a storyline that tends to be both confusing and annoying.
While the concept was an interesting idea, the execution left a lot to be desired. Most movies, if not all, has a main storyline (the A story) followed by one or two (sometimes more) subplots (B story, C story, etc). This had two A stories. I am not sure if the main idea of this story is supposed to be the Vice-President visit (and attempted kidnapping) or the little boy who befriends the main character (Nick Torino). Both stories run parallel to each other in a storyline that tends to be both confusing and annoying. So much so that it is really hard to quickly describe what this movie is about. One story follows the drivers of the Ventura Limo service who have been picked to drive motorcade for the Vice President's visit to Los Angeles. Alternately, one of the drivers, Nick Torino, befriends a boy whose life he saved several years ago as an ambulance driver. While Nick is making friends with the boy and his pretty social worker, Gwen, he and his brother find themselves entangled with an insane ex-Secret Service agent who may or may not have proof that the Vice-President will be kidnapped during his visit to the City of Angels. The director and writers spend much too much time with both storylines, thereby, neglecting them both in the rush to bring an end to the movie.
