Bobby Comfort is the only one of three prison breakers who gets far, from Rochester (NY) to Florida. Once caught in the act of more thefts, he successfully pleads unlawful overextended incarceration and is free to return to his wife Peggy and daughter Stephanie. Mystery crime mind Sammy Nalo tempts Bobby to try a new 'niche', stealing from barely-protected New York state hotels. Clever Bobby saves the day despite his accomplices' violent stupidity and enjoys using his charms. However his own in-law, Phil Parris, besotted with Peggy and demoted from detective to uniformed, ultimately gets the authorities motivated to start a task force. Written by KGF Vissers

I wasted my time. Don't make that mistake.
12 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was so bad I had to watch it in pieces because it was so cringeworthy. I taped it and had high hopes because I very much like Marsters' work on Buffy. But in this movie he was wooden and seemed uncharacteristically and woefully unprepared. The plot could have been a slick little heist movie but the scriptwriters managed to take something intrinsically exciting and make it yawnable. The pacing was terrible and that may be the worst flaw-farce has to stay on its toes to stay alive. However, it took Margot Kidder to supply the cringe. Not the very talented Margot of old. Marsters needed a job and a success but he only got one of those with this drek.
