From Back Cover:
"...BATTLE OF WITS AND A PLOT PACKED WITH SURPRISES"
-Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"A TWISTED NARRATIVE RIDE WHOSE FINAL LAPS INCLUDE SHAPR HAIRPIN TURNS"
-Stephen Holden, New York Times
CHRISTOPHER WALKEN, DENIS LEARY, SEAN PATRICK FLANERY, JEREMY SISTO and HENRY THOMAS star in this deliciously wicked comedy-thriller.
Avery is desperate: his sister has been kidnapped an ransomed for $2,000,000, and his father doesn't have the cash. So Avery and his buddies concoct a bold, semi-suicidal scheme: abduct retired mob boss Charlie Bartolucci (Christopher Walken), hide out in their uptight friend Ira's house while his folks are out of town, and force Bartolucci to use his contacts to find the girl. Amused by his fledgling captors, the seasoned mobster agrees to help them...but not before he cautions them that the guilty party might be right under their noses.
"Strongly and confidently directed by Peter O'Fallon, who is making an impressive feature film debut."
-Rex Reed, New York Observer
