Storyline

Walrus-like warden, Sven "Swede" Sorenson, a cross between Bluto and Wimpy, runs the prison, murders convicts who escape, and has the FBI on his trail in the form of agent Karen Polarski, the daughter of the town's corrupt judge. Swede's twins tell their father they're pregnant (they aren't), so he pushes their dim boyfriends, Bud and Larry, into shotgun marriages. He also turns his sons-in-law into slave labor, so Bud hatches an escape plan: to rob a train carrying old bills to the mint for burning. Larry's his reluctant accomplice. When Bud is captured and railroaded into Swede's jail, his death looks certain, until he hatches yet another plan that requires Larry's help. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Big names, Big bomb
5 April 2002 | by guitardude2000_caSee all my reviews

This is a good example of a bad movie. I had to take a break in the middle, as I can not sit through the entire 1hr 42 mins in one go. Almost every aspect of this film gets on my nerves...especially the Swedes daughters.

I have vented enough and shall never think of this movie again.

Do yourself a favour and pass this one up.
