A crime caper that is quite entertaining.
18 September 1999 | by Mike1201See all my reviews

This little crime caper of lost souls and found money is an entertaining twist to a familiar plot. Both Scheider and Braga caught my attention and I thorougly enjoyed watching them team up and manipulate events in a new way. Even Las Vegas looked good.
