When Andrew Sterling, a successful black urbanite writer buys a vacation house on a resort in New England the police mistake him for a burglar. After surrounding his house with armed men, Chief Tolliver realizes his mistake, and to avoid the bad publicity offers a thief in his jail, Amos Odell a deal. Amos is to pretend to take Andrew prisoner and hold him for ransom, but let him go and escape. Amos and Andrew suddenly realize that the Chief's problems are all gone if the two of them both die in a gun battle. The worst partnership in film history then tries to get away from the local police. Written by John Vogel

Quotes Amos Odell: Look. I'm not holding you hostage anymore, okay? But you got to know, we're in this together now, right? You and me. Amos and Andrew. Let's go.
Andrew Sterling: Don't say that.
Amos Odell: What?
Andrew Sterling: Our names... together.
Amos Odell: W-Why?
Andrew Sterling: Well, I'll spare you the history lesson. Besides, you wouldn't understand.
Amos Odell: What do you mean, I wouldn't understand? You don't understand, man. We're gangsters. We're outlaws.
Andrew Sterling: Gangsters? Outlaws? You're a nickel-and-dime criminal, a petty crook. And you to figure out very quickly where it is you think your going. Because let me tell you, white boy, you are definitely headed in the wrong direction. I've had enough of this. I'm going home.
