Storyline

France 1944: during an aerial bombardment, two boys are separated from their parents; the older one helps the younger. Jump ahead to contemporary Manhattan where chief financial officer Jimmy Stevens punishes his company's murderous practices in Third World countries by setting up its stock release to fail. He knows they'll kill him in retaliation; he asks for two weeks. By telephone, using a voice disguising device, he hires a private detective, Frank Turlotte, to watch ... Jimmy. What's going on? Jimmy goes to the park where he reads a book and talks to children; he visits his aged mother. Frank observes it all. The two-week deadline approaches. What's Jimmy's game?

Where is my hand gun when I need it?
29 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish I had it so I could have shot myself and saved myself from watching this pretentious piece of refuse. This movie is dull, uneventful, and slower than a snail. The first 45 minutes seemed like they took 3 hours to watch. It goes nowhere, is poorly written, and is filled with trivial scenes which simply waste your time and are not germane to the plot.

Do yourself a favor and do not waste your money nor time on this wreck of a film. After reading other peoples reviews all I can figure from those who rated this nonsense highly are so high on their own farts they can't see straight.
