Storyline

Tripp (Patrick Dempsey) walks into a bank to get some change and ends up as a hostage to two bank robber-teams, robbing the bank he is at. In an almost Sherlock Holmesian way he has to solve this Agatha Christie inspired mystery and win the girl's (Ashley Judd) heart. But not everything is at it seems, and there are many twists and turns in this comedy. Written by Nali

Goofs

The gun used to kill the very first victim is a Beretta 92FS or US Army M9. It is a double-action handgun with open hammer design. Judging by the trigger position, the pistol has already been cocked, but the hammer is not. Moreover, we see the finger pull the trigger and the gun fire without any movement of the hammer, which is impossible in this situation. See more »

Relaxing comedy that will bring smile on you face
3 November 2011 | by faruk_karalijaSee all my reviews

This movie is funny comedy. Congratulation Rob Minkoff.The story is very original, very effective scenes,actually every scene is funny on her own way,also,the scenes are short and that can be sometimes very funny.The end of the movie is unpredictable and that is the point of whole movie. For me it is excellent,end of the movie - something unpredictable, like it. From the beginning until the end of movie,there are funny talks, funny body moves, funny situations, all that with little black humor. So if you tired or bored this is excellent movie to relax and have beautiful smile on you face.

"Flyparer" - great 87 min.
