Storyline

About a police detective, Jack, who, while doing a friend a favor and searching for a runaway teenager on Turk Street, stumbles upon a bizarre band of criminals about to pull off a bank robbery. Jack finds himself being held hostage while the criminals decide what to do with him, and the leader's beautiful girlfriend, Erin, is left alone to watch Jack. Erin, who we discover is a master manipulator of the men in the gang, reveals another side to Jack - a melancholy romantic who could have been a classical cellist. She finds Jack's captivity an irresistible turn-on and he can't figure out if she's for real, or manipulating him, too. Before the gang returns, Jack and Erin's connection intensifies and who ends up with the money is anyone's guess. Written by Kate Hoffman

Goofs

The most likely cause of a diabetic coma that came on as fast as the one Jack had is severe diabetic hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Erin did the right thing originally by trying to give him an orange. She needed to raise his blood sugar. When she went to his home she found his Insulin. Giving him insulin would have only made him worse. A coma caused by high blood sugar would have been a lot longer in coming. See more »

Bad script, bad acting, stupid plot, lovely breasts!
11 October 2003 | by mtzinakisSee all my reviews

rented this cause of the cast. hadn't heard anything about this movie, no wonder why. In a few words, it is awful, the acting is very average, below average i would say, especially if you consider the actors in it,and that is offcource due to the bad script and stupid plot. The story starts with samuel playing cello!! as he is a wannabe musician, and he is also a grand theft cop. the neighbor comes in and convinces him to look for her dissapeared daughter. he has a photo of her and her boyfriend and goes on to look for them on turk street. He ends up in a house where some criminals live and are planing to rob a bank and think that he is after them, while he is not. The robers are an old couple, a psycho guy with bad temper, mila jojovic and tairon, the brain of the operation apparently. The plan they have for robing the bank is verry unconvincing, and thats a very weak part of the movie. The other weak part is the relationships between the characters, which is also silly and unconvincing. There is no chemistry between the characters and the whole story just sucks, the acting and the script doesnt help either. The ending is crap too.

To sum up, avoid, nothing here to see (except of the breasts of mila jojovic lol!)
