Upon getting out of prison, a man who took the rap for some thief buddies gets together with them again, and tells them he's not interested in doing things with them any more. They stick a dead body in his trunk, unbeknownst to him, and he roars off to find his future. Unfortunately, they forgot to get the key they need off the body, so they're chasing him. Meanwhile, a mafia kingpin's daughter is trying to kill the hitman that killed her father, but her grandmother is trying to make peace with the family that hired the hitman, so she and her thugs are trying to stop the daughter. The guy and the daughter get together and experience mayhem on the run from two directions. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Highly Entertaining

After spending more than five years in prison, Harry Talbot (Michael Madsen) plays poker with his comrades and wins a large amount and a Lincoln. However Harry does not know that his buddies have dumped a body in the trunk of the car. Meanwhile, a young woman called Kit Califano (Patricia Arquette) is trying to revenge her father killing the mafia kingpin Santino (Seymour Cassel) that killed him. Kit is the granddaughter of the also mafia kingpin Grandma Martucci (Florence Stanley) that sends her henchmen to bring her back home. When Harry meets Kit in a bar, she escapes from the men and he gives a ride to her. Meanwhile Harry's buddies discover that the key that they need to open a safe with money is with the corpse and they hunt him down while the mobsters seek Kit out to accomplish Grandma's order. The hunting begins while Harry and Kit want to get rid of the body,

"Trouble Bound" is a highly entertaining action-comedy with a funny story. Michael Madsen is in the top of his career and the lovely Patricia Arquette is sweet and gorgeous. The corpse steals the show and might have been the inspiration for the 1989 Weekend at Bernie's. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Arriscando Tudo" ("Risking Everything")
