Storyline

A chain of events starts with the arrival of a mysterious suitcase in Miami. Arthur Herk, a corrupt business owner, wants to get his hands on the case. At the same time, two hit men want him whacked. Tired of his constant fixation on drinking and television, Herk's wife Anna and daughter Jenny decide to find new love interests in divorced dad Eliot Arnold and his son Matt. To add more complication, two thieves decide to steal the case and lead a Miami police team and two FBI agents on a wild goose chase that ends inside the Miami airport terminal.

One Long Laugh
11 December 2003 | by smay1See all my reviews

Don't see too many movies more than a couple of times but as far as an excellent put together smart movie, this one is one of the best comedies I've seen. Seen it many times since and will still chuckle at the thought. The cast each played their own parts to perfection, even the little spots; all for maximum understatements. One of the best missed movies, maybe it will turn into a cult following for another time. Probably the negative comments just can't understand.
