Bi-polar mall security guard Ronnie Barnhardt is called into action to stop a flasher from turning shopper's paradise into his personal peep show. But when Barnhardt can't bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective, is recruited to close the case.
The not so smart Dwayne intends to open a massage parlor with his partner Travis, but he does not have money for the investment. He decides to hire a hit-man to kill his father, The Major, who won a large amount of money in the lottery years ago, but the killer demands US$ 100,000 for the job. Dwayne and Travis kidnap the pizza delivery boy Nick and they dress Nick in a vest with a timer and several bombs. Then Dwayne tells Nick that he has ten hours to rob US$ 100,000 from a bank. Once he does, he would give Nick the code to release the vest. Nick summons his best friend Chet to help him in the heist but the scheme does not work the way Dwayne has plotted. Written by

Fred Ward is credited as The Major, but near final third of the film when he is walking through his house, his oversized lottery check is shown on the wall, issued to him. Therefore, his character's name is Jerry Mikowiski. See more »
The bank guard's gun could not have fired as depicted. A blow to the hammer of a modern double action revolver (like the one carried by the guard) cannot cause a discharge because the hammer block safety remains automatically engaged until the trigger is pulled. See more »
Why did that engine explode?
Remember that bomb I was telling you about? I kind of typed in the code, reactivated it and put in the back of that guy's van.
What? That's some John McClane shit! Yes!
How did you remember the code?
It doesn't matter. We are alive, and we are rich.

This could have been a fun movie...there is a plot, the casting is good...but once again, we have a prime case of screen writers who really aren't. It's as if, in half the movies these days, and this is a perfect example of one, the writers have no clue as to how to write dialogue, so they decide to talk dirty for an hour and a half and call it good. It isn't. It's awful. If this is still the remains of trying for shock value in movies, it doesn't work anymore. It's boring. It's dull. It's repetitive. Viewers don't want shock value. We want entertainment. Somewhere out there in Hollywood land, there have to be writers who can actually write - who have imagination - who have creativity. But, unfortunately, none were hired for this movie. Blah!
