A white middle class South African suburbanite with no interest in politics agrees to help his black gardener find his jailed son. His investigation opens his eyes to the horrors committed by the secret police and turns him into a target.
Walrus-like warden, Sven "Swede" Sorenson, a cross between Bluto and Wimpy, runs the prison, murders convicts who escape, and has the FBI on his trail in the form of agent Karen Polarski, the daughter of the town's corrupt judge. Swede's twins tell their father they're pregnant (they aren't), so he pushes their dim boyfriends, Bud and Larry, into shotgun marriages. He also turns his sons-in-law into slave labor, so Bud hatches an escape plan: to rob a train carrying old bills to the mint for burning. Larry's his reluctant accomplice. When Bud is captured and railroaded into Swede's jail, his death looks certain, until he hatches yet another plan that requires Larry's help.Written by
There was a long casting process to find actresses to play the twins. The roles eventually went to Quebec natives Christin and Holly Watson, who have not had any acting roles before or since 1997 when the move was filmed. See more »
I watched this today and really enjoyed it. I looked through the credits and saw the name Martin Sheen and remembered Apocalypse Now. Both Brando and Martin together again really interesting i thought to myself. So i watched the film waiting and wondering when he would come into the film. It was disappointing that he was only in it for less than 10 seconds but I thought what he says to Marlon is equally funny and brilliant.
I thought the film to be a bit thin on the relationship between Sutherland and Sorvino but the film is great enough to sit next to the other DVDs in my collection.
