The story is quite boring. A bunch of people are after money. Big deal, woopdy doo. Like that hasn't been the plot of a million movies...
There is 3 million dollars floating around somewhere that this videogame designed by Carly has secretly made. It started "dummy accounts" and shaved off some of the profit from some big corporations and ended up making 3 million. Kind of like the scheme in Office Space.
This time, there are violent mafia-type people looking for the money. Carly's sister gets unknowingly and unwillingly wrapped up in the situation. Everyone lies to the sister (Bobbie) the whole time to try to get her to tell them where the money is. But she really has no clue where the money is. Yep, it's that boring.
I did like the color and the camera style of the movie. I don't know anything about cinematography, but for some reason, the way they filmed this really stood out. I couldn't tell you why. Everything was very clear and crisp. I liked that. The computer in the movie was pretty ominous, too. Some movies from the 80's try to have computers in them and you just laugh at how dumb and outdated they are. This computer was actually one step up from that.
The only part of the movie I liked was the relationship between Bobbie and Frank. I thought they were kind of cute. And Bobbie did a good job at playing "hard to get" while still maintaining her dignity.
However, I would not recommend watching this movie. Really.
