While the three were calculating how much was spent, and therefore still owed by Sam and Leslie, the $4.00 Leslie gave to the mortgage officer before she even knew about the "found" money was never credited back to them. They included it into what they had spent. Meaning they "found" $625,727.00, not the $625,731.00 that was used as the basis for all the calculations. See more »

Thriller-Comedy which fails at both suspense and humor for the mostpart
I expected this too be good for some reason and had an interesting premise, who hasn't fantasized about finding a suitcase full of money?
And add the fact that a gangster is coming and wants his money back now with that story you'd expect a thrilling suspenseful ride right?
But that's hardly what you get, if you're thinking that this is an actionmovie you couldn't be more wrong, well I guess you could but you'll be disappointed with the little action this movie has to offer.
Without telling too much of the plot the 2 good guys (technically 1 guy and 1 girl but it's a saying) become hostage to this "madman" who isn't doing enough "mad" stuff to ever feel particularly frightening, and neither the couple seem to take the whole thing too serious, a lot of screen time goes into the couple and their relationship.
I dunno parts of this movie feels more like a cheesy hallmark-movie or something than a Hollywood-flick (especially the scenes with only the couple in it).
I'd say it's at least 25 minutes too long too.
It should have been grittier and it should have at least made a proper attempt at being suspenseful, it tries at the end but by then it's a little too late to even care.
It's not a complete disaster though, like it's not the worst movie of all time or anything and there are some scenes here and there that are somewhat amusing but yeah it's just really talky and most of the dialog sucks.
Maybe the biggest Sean Bean fans will enjoy it for his performance though, even though I personally felt like he could have done more with it BUT I mean compared to the other 2 leads he was definitely the best actor in it.
