When a man dressed as a clown enters a bank and tries to rob it, no one takes him seriously at start. But as this New Yorker pulls this daring robbery with the help of his friends, it looks like leaving the bank with all the stolen money is the easy part! All they have to do now is make it out of the city and to the airport. They have plenty of time, but its not that easy as they seem to get out of one problem only to fall into another. Will they make before the cops catch up with them? Written by Sami Al-Taher <staher2000@yahoo.com>

Goofs

During the end airplane sequence, an exterior shot is shown of the engine starting. The red-flagged safety pin for the main landing gear is clearly visible. This is normally removed during preflight unless the airplane is in maintenance. The airplane would not be cleared to fly with this in place. See more »

Consistently funny for the most part, although the end sort of drags along...
26 February 2004 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Funny remake starring Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Randy Quaid as down-on-their-luck thieves who rob a bank and then have a hard time getting out of NYC. Funny from beginning to end. Well, almost. The last twenty minutes or so seem to drag a bit. But I loved the first 3/4, and the opening sequence is tremendous!

Bill Murray is very funny and Randy Quaid is a likable goofball. Geena Davis manages to impress but the real star is Murray, as always. All in all a pleasant way to spend an evening and certainly a memorable comedy--if a slightly uneven one.

4/5 stars.
