Two convicts, one charismatic (Willis) and the other a hypochondriac (Thornton), break out of prison and immediately start a bank robbing spree, kidnapping bank managers, spending the night with their families, then going with the managers in the morning to rob the banks. Using a dim-witted stunt man as their getaway driver and lookout, the three successfully pull off several jobs (even gaining the attention of a television show about American criminals), and become known as "The Sleepover Bandits." Things are going great until the bank managers begin to realize that the robbers are non-violent and therefore no threat to them or their employees, changing the game for the Bandits. To add to the complications, a bored & unhappy housewife (Blanchett) ends up in the hands of the criminals, and begins to have romantic feelings for both Willis and Thornton, causing a sticky love triangle.Written by

The storyline is loosely based on real life bank robbers Terry Lee Connor and Joseph Daugherty. Many elements of their heists are accurately depicted in this film, including breaking into the house of a bank manager, and giving a soda to one of their victims. See more »

Do you remember what I said about conspicuous behavior?
Keep it low profile.
Are you achieving it do you think?

Billy Bob Thorton and Bruce Willis play 2 men who break out of jail and rob banks. The trailer showed the movie as a mix between thriller and comedy but the truth is it's much to dark to be funny and much to goofy to be taken seriously and really the only funny scenes in the whole movie were already shown in the trailer. I am a huge Willis fan and he is the only reason I saw this long and boring movie that delivers no laughs, no excitement and no sentimentality. You won't care ne bit for any of the characters because they are all bland and uninteresting especially Kate Blanchet who's charatcer has no point of being in the movie in the first place. Bruce Willis is the only person holding this whole mess together and I can't say that he was all that good either. They only people who should watch this movie are insomniacs who are trying to get some sleep everyone else should stick to the funny movies in this genre like Money Talks and Nothing to Loose.
