Bobby Comfort is the only one of three prison breakers who gets far, from Rochester (NY) to Florida. Once caught in the act of more thefts, he successfully pleads unlawful overextended incarceration and is free to return to his wife Peggy and daughter Stephanie. Mystery crime mind Sammy Nalo tempts Bobby to try a new 'niche', stealing from barely-protected New York state hotels. Clever Bobby saves the day despite his accomplices' violent stupidity and enjoys using his charms. However his own in-law, Phil Parris, besotted with Peggy and demoted from detective to uniformed, ultimately gets the authorities motivated to start a task force. Written by KGF Vissers

... and James does it again!
24 March 2005 | by radishbabe19See all my reviews

This movie brings not only originality in its plot, but also the way the story is portrayed...from the point of view of Bobby Comfort, accenting on his life, his way of thinking, the different number of events that led to the Pierre Heist. The story seemed to start off slow and had i not been a James fan, i probably would have changed channels. It could have used a better script...but then again we are used to Joss, Marti, and David...so who could blame a Buffy fan for saying that? However the movie seemed to catch my interest as i kept watching. And then I began not only watching the movie for James but for the story. James brought so much depth to his character. Although well supported by other actors, James definitely stood out among them all as more talented, more capable, and more good-looking than the rest! I would definitely recommend this movie to all viewers!

if you're looking for a slick, cool, well-planned plot and a charismatic cast..this is the movie for you!
