After 28 years, Val gets out of prison, and his friend Doc picks him up. The local mob boss, Claphands, wants Val dead (Claphands' son died in a robbery and he blames Val) and Doc has until morning to kill him. It's a long night: Val wants to party - they visit a cat house, Val needs Viagra, they break into a pharmacy. After midnight, they pick up Hirsch, their old wheelman, drive the city in a stolen car. They visit the cat house, help a woman in distress, bury a body, and eat at Doc's hangout, a café where the waitress, Alex, is cheerful. The sun rises, Claphands wants Val dead, and Val, who has figured out his fate, is resigned. Is there anything left to take care of? Written by

The only piece of "modern technology" in the film is the new car that Pacino, Walken, and Arkin drive throughout the film. If you notice, every other technology used is very old: rotary dial phones are used constantly; many AWA televisions are seen, one showing an old episode of what appears to be Soul Train; and several old cars are seen in the background throughout the film.

When Hirsch comes back with Oxana she says "Ty choudovy" to him. It means "You are marvelous" in Ukrainian, but Wendy introduced Oxana as a girl from Minsk (Belarussia). She supposed to speak Belarussian or Russian language. The subtitles mistakenly state she tells this sentence in Russian. See more
