The not so smart Dwayne intends to open a massage parlor with his partner Travis, but he does not have money for the investment. He decides to hire a hit-man to kill his father, The Major, who won a large amount of money in the lottery years ago, but the killer demands US$ 100,000 for the job. Dwayne and Travis kidnap the pizza delivery boy Nick and they dress Nick in a vest with a timer and several bombs. Then Dwayne tells Nick that he has ten hours to rob US$ 100,000 from a bank. Once he does, he would give Nick the code to release the vest. Nick summons his best friend Chet to help him in the heist but the scheme does not work the way Dwayne has plotted.Written by

Fred Ward is credited as The Major, but near the final third of the film, when he is walking through his house, his oversized lottery check is shown on the wall, issued to him. So, his character's name is Major Jerry Mikowlski. See more »
No one ever mentions the fact that law enforcement would be looking for them even though they have committed a Federal offense (Armed bank robbery) that the FBI would be involved in; Use of an explosive device while committing a Felony that the ATF would be involved in; as well as State and Local charges ranging from attempted murder (the man shot in the bank), felonious assault with a weapon, felony eluding, assault on a police officer, to any injuries to the pursuing police officers as a result of the chase, etc.
Nick and Chet would be the most wanted criminals in the State of Michigan following the bank robbery and flight from the police. See more »

Good plot, lousy writing
This could have been a fun movie...there is a plot, the casting is good...but once again, we have a prime case of screen writers who really aren't. It's as if, in half the movies these days, and this is a perfect example of one, the writers have no clue as to how to write dialogue, so they decide to talk dirty for an hour and a half and call it good. It isn't. It's awful. If this is still the remains of trying for shock value in movies, it doesn't work anymore. It's boring. It's dull. It's repetitive. Viewers don't want shock value. We want entertainment. Somewhere out there in Hollywood land, there have to be writers who can actually write - who have imagination - who have creativity. But, unfortunately, none were hired for this movie. Blah!
