Did You Know?

Goofs

The plot of this film takes place in Santa Monica, CA. The killer's van shows blue California plates. When the van is parked on the top level of the parking structure, a police cruiser with two officers shows up. As they leave they check the plates, we see a white California plate with plate number instead of the blue plate shown on front and back as the van is moving. Also, the plate numbers/letters don't even come close to looking like the font CA uses on their plates. See more »

The movie tripfalls on its face
11 May 2013 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Ridiculous implausible heist/ransom caper that I still found some enjoyment from thanks, in no small part, due to the late great John Ritter's sheer charisma. Even in a film as stunted and borderline absurd as this one was, his likability still shines through, here as normal everyman Tom.

Tom goes on vacation with his family hoping to reignite the spark of his dying marriage, if for the kids sake if nothing else. However that gets put on the back-burner when he and his family get abducted by a trio of baddies headed by Eric Roberts in dreads. What follows is entertaining enough ridiculousness.

By the by, and totally unrelated, but I'm starting to do a six-degrees type spin on what films I review so the next one will also star Mr. Roberts
