Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Chet is painting the gun, smudges on the car door can be seen. In the shots where the car is stopped, the smudges are gone, also the painted paper is turned. Later in the end of the movie when the van drives next to them, the paint smudges are also not on the door. See more »

Quotes

Chet: [trying to pick out the right toy gun to buy and use in the robbery by practicing with it in the store] EVERYBODY! GET DOWN ON THE GR...
Nick: Shhh! Jesus!
Chet: [more quietly] Everybody! Get down on the ground NOW and go get us our money!
Nick: Uh, how are they supposed to get the money when you just told them...
Chet: Go get us our money and THEN everybody get down on the ground!

Good plot, lousy writing
9 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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!
