A bank robbery starts to go awry when a cop tells the getaway driver he can't park there. While one of the robbers is looking through the vault, he finds a hole in the floor leading to the main plot of the movie.
This professionally rendered movie hits all the correct points in its twisting, muddled tale of some mid-twenties who have been hanging together for what has come to seem like too long. All of the main actors are handsome, personable have learned their roles very well. However, the tale as offered is a bit too hackneyed to make me think this is more than another decent movie. Even the happy idea of mixing several types of stories together confuses matters and makes the revelation of character seem simultaneously rushed and contrived. Despite some good set-piece sequences, this is no more than a competent work, ideal for an empty afternoon.
