Trivia

Most of the exterior shots of the town were actually shot in Forney, Texas (which was the home of Darlene Cates). The town's signature Jackrabbit, an ornament atop a Lion's Club sign, was adorned with antlers and called the Jackaloupe for the purposes of the movie. Signs to downtown businesses were also covered up with fake signs, hiding the real names of the businesses. See more »

Bumbling partners Chuck Betts (Pauly Shore) and Harold Cantrell (Max Perlich) try to rob the First Inferno National Bank to fix up their plane. They are interrupted by two other robbers. Chuck gets stuck in the bathroom and passes himself off as one of the victims. He falls for gorgeous deputy Layla Moanes (Janine Turner). There is a surprising amount in the small bank and Chuck suspects dirty money. Moles Huddenel (Ned Beatty) and bank manager Lonnie Martin (Stephen Tobolowsky) have been laundering $3 million.

It's a good thing that Pauly Shore isn't playing the wacky idiot. It would be even better for him to play a smarter character. There are a few more stupidity from the other characters. This needs to be a tight dark crime drama. It's nowhere near that level but it could have tried. This is caught in the middle. It's not the usual Pauly Shore silliness but it can't be taken seriously either.
