A Pulitzer prize writer buys a cabin. The neighbors get suspicious when a stranger "breaks in". They see a black man and call the police, who start shooting at him. The sheriff tries a cover-up involving a white petty crook. Bad idea.

When learning the parachute, Jack is told to pull the yellow handle for his main chute and if that didn't open, to pull the red handle for the auxiliary chute. He ends up pulling "Yellow then Red" which would deploy both chutes. Having both chutes deployed would be dangerous and impossible to control. See more »
Betsy, hi, so what's the story?
I have to pack.
We can leave! What did you work out?
Um, he's taking me to Hawaii. It's only for a few days.
Come on. You're so like blithe about this all of a sudden, like you don't give a damn.
Of course I give a damn but this was not my idea okay, Jack. Poker was not my idea.
Would you please stop crucifying me with this?
Where's my bag?
He's going to jump all over you the second he gets there.
I won't let him. Oh please, Jack, give me a little credit.

Stumbled onto this one after managing to avoid it for so long. Other than the fact that the film is terribly miscast in all three major roles the thing that struck me is how poorly directed it was. I stayed for about 1 hour and twenty minutes but just couldn't make the ending. Thought I'd come on IDMB and blast the director for such a poor job; scenes shot from the wrong angle, actors horribly overplaying their parts, somehow making Hawaii look "dead" on screen. Found out it was directed by Andrew Bergman and was flabbergasted...the Andrew Bergman that did The Freshman? Oh well, you know nothing is worse than when comedy goes bad...if you don't know it maybe you should rent this film.
