It was a big mistake. Cost me 18 months, my broker's license, and the trust of my family.
That your wife?
Yeah, 40 years and counting.
How do you do it?
I don't know. I guess if you say you're gonna fix the screen door, you better fix the screen door. Because the first time you let her down, she'll be waiting for you the next time.

A gang of 4 people just robbed a money transport. They stole 4 million dollars and got it in a bag. To get past a road block they hide the money in a family car. The car belongs to a family with 2 children who are going camping together. The plan was to get the money back from them when they pas the road block. This isn't as easy as they thought...
The movie focuses mainly on the robbers chasing the family, while also shining a light on the personal problems of the father and their marriage.
The story is decent. It isn't going to win any awards but it's not a total cliché either. The same can be said about every other aspect. The acting is good. The movie does nothing really wrong and doesn't do anything great either. If you're looking for a fun crime/drama/thriller that isn't a total cliché, this is what you are looking for.
Some small annoyances at the ending. One of the biggest mistakes of them all: always check if your victim is dead. Luckily, this only happens once. At one point a woman takes cover from gunfire behind a tipped table. The (wooden!) table gets hit with shotgun and assault rifle fire. The table seems to be indestructible, there is not a scratch on it.
Besides these faults, there's not much else to tell. I give it a 7 out of 10, key word being "decent".
