A gigolo, a former professional athlete, a spoiled heiress, a champion female figure skater, a live band, and three desperate men are all brought together under the same roof, for a party thrown by a young, hot-shot, corporate attorney. The three desperate men are good people forced into crime by their own personal circumstances. Knowing that the heiress will be present, they crash the party and hold dozens of guests hostage. They demand ransom from the heiress' father, a powerful publishing magnate, warning him that if he goes to the police, he will have the blood of countless innocent victims on his hands. This being Los Angeles, of course, no one at the party is really "innocent". The former professional athlete and the gigolo are morally corrupt men whom circumstances force into heroic behavior. They courageously attempt to foil the kidnapers' plans and liberate the guests held hostage. Unfortunately, no one at the party turns out to be quite what they say, and everyone has their ...

Hip caper
31 December 2002 | by kayleerenaeSee all my reviews

This hip little caper has definite high-points-- cool cinematography, engaging sound track, attractive actors/actresses, intermittent witty banter. Technically, the movie is solid.

The plot revolves around a wealthy socialite character-- unfortunately, the actress who plays the role delivers a totally unnuanced performance that eclipses everything else, making the script seem more sophomoric than necessary. The chemistry between the actors could also be better...the interactions can at times be a bit wooden.
