An aging alcoholic cop is assigned the task of escorting a witness from police custody to a courthouse 16 blocks away. There are, however, chaotic forces at work that prevent them from making it in one piece.
When a family is held hostage, former hostage negotiator Jeff Talley arrives at the scene. Talley's own family is kidnapped and Talley must decide which is more important: saving a family he doesn't even know or saving his own family.
Serena Scott Thomas
Coming from a police family, Tom Hardy ends up fighting his uncle after the murder of his father. Tom believes the killer is another cop and goes on the record with his allegations. Demoted then to river duty, the killer taunts Tom.
Sarah Jessica Parker,
Montreal, Canada.

Egged on my his loathsome wife Sophie (Rosanna Arquette), Oz sets off to Chicago to let the mob know where The Tulip is, and hopefully claim part of the reward.Written by
Is the first mainstream American movie to be filmed on location in Montréal, Quebec. See more »
Dental records cannot be faked. It isn't just a matter of matching up dental work on a couple of Panellipse films (as shown in the movie). There is also everyone's unique bone density/structure, unique root structure, individual tooth sizes and variations in shape to be considered. These are things that cannot be altered. Moreover, those are the things that they look at when identifying someone from dental records. See more »

Hey Oz, since I'm new here I was wondering if you could show me the sites, you know?

Leanna McOemmecon is listed in the credits as the stand in for Rosanna Arquette, when it should read Leanna McLennan. (I worked as a stand in for Rosanna Arquette while filming in Quebec. The correct spelling of my name is Leanna McLennan. Each day, my name would be spelled differently on the call sheet - McLean, etc. Each day, I would correct it. In the end, I am listed in the credits as Leanna McOemmecon, which I find quite amusing.) See more »
This is one (if not the one) of my favorite movies.
I just loved it, it has an excellent plot, perfect acting from most of the actors, specially Matthew Perry... and it's just great when you can find a movie nowadays where you can't predict the ending cause everything is possible to happen.
It's very funny
It's a pleasure to watch, alone or even better with friends
You're gonna be in for a real treat...
Although, if you like this one, don't get your hopes up too high... Cause the second one "The Whole Ten Yards", is faaaaaar from this good.
Hope you like this movie as much as I did
