Storyline

Rockstar Rick James asks the A-team to help a friend and colleague of his, C.J. Mack, who is about to be released from Rockford State Penitentiary after ten years for dozing off in his Maserati causing a fatal accident, as he stopped communicating. They are just in time to prevent him being killed by the dressed-up prisoners and real guard Quint who want him to tell the hiding place inside for the tapes he made of their hold-ups while on work details outside. It all goes to easy, and indeed two-faced prison warden Crichton gets his man Quint out and decides to eliminate C.J.- so the team gets Rick James and several major stars, including Lionel Richie, to offer doing a rock benefit no politician dares turn down, so they can get in as crewmen...

Quotes

Faceman: See, I'm, I'm James Peppich of the Central Bureau of Parol Applicants.
Devon Paige: [pulls a gun on him] Wrong. You are not anyone called James Peppich and there is no such thing as the devision of Parol Applications.
Faceman: Lucky for you! You'd be in a lot of trouble pointing that gun at me.
Devon Paige: I have a license to carry this. I also happen to be a very good shot and will have no trouble if I decide to shoot you.
Faceman: Let's avoid that at all costs!
