Though it's been about twenty years since they have spoken with one another, two estranged soul-singing legends agree to participate in a reunion performance at the Apollo Theater to honor their recently deceased band leader.
An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling, and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city's annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.
Nick's wife's in bed with his boss. He later gets a gun to his head by a carjacker but steps on the gas pedal. They end up friends after adventures together - holdups, burglary, reckless driving, revenge etc. Twists follow.

This so-called comedy loses all track of direction, makes "comedic" use of extreme violence and bloodshed, is pointless and inane, uses profanity instead of wit, and dulls the intelligence level of its watchers. I evidently had a masochistic urge when I turned it on and stuck to it. It is blissfully short and makes ill-use of Sheen, Sorvino and Locklear. (Their agents should have known better.)
