Tripp ('Patrick Dempsey') walks into a bank to get some change and ends up as a hostage to two bank robber-teams, robbing the bank he is at. In an almost Sherlock Holmesian way he has to solve this Agatha Christie inspired mystery and win the girls (Ashley Judd) heart. But not everything is at it seems, and there are many twists and turns in this comedy. Written by Nali

Did You Know?


Jessica Biel and Liv Tyler were considered for the lead female role. See more »


The gun used to kill the very first victim is a Beretta 92FS or US Army M9. It is a double-action handgun with open hammer design. Judging by the trigger position, the pistol has already been cocked, but the hammer is not. Moreover, we see the finger pull the trigger and the gun fire without any movement of the hammer, which is impossible in this situation. See more »


Gates: You fuckin' mugs are the worst bank robbers I've ever seen, do you know that?
Jelly: Yeah? Ya know, you just blew my ear off like 15 minutes ago, so you'll pardon me if I just let your little comments go in one ear and out the other.

Bright,Light & Funny ... This movie was a balanced Mix & a lot of Fun
17 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a crime comedy which really delivers the comedy.Small scenes acted out perfectly and the movie had a bright feel to it which made it more interesting to watch.

Casting was nice.The actors really fit to the roles they were given and the mystery remains a mystery till the very end.Again, the humor in this movie was really good.There was all kinds of comedy based on situations that fit the style perfectly.

Very often you see a movie with such good understanding of the Characters. The plot is very simple and movie seems a bit predictable in the beginning BUT of-course its not.The story is very original and Patrick Dempsey's character "Tripp Kennedy" is which i liked the most.He's interesting,really.

So, its a bank robbery with two robbery-teams that plan to rob the same bank at the same time (this is funny already).There's a little feel of black comedy and also a bit of "Stupid-eh-ism" which really is fun.

Its a movie you can just watch (with the more the merrier) for a lot of laughs and a few great laughs and have a great time and also relax all in all.

I rate it 7.7/10

Hope This Helps. Thank You for reading my review.HAPPY VIEWING
