A high school swim champion with a troubled past enrolls in the U.S. Coast Guard's "A" School, where legendary rescue swimmer Ben Randall teaches him some hard lessons about loss, love, and self-sacrifice.
It was an ingenious enough plan: rob the Riviera Casino's count room during an Elvis impersonator convention. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. With $3.2 million at stake, the Marshals Service closing in, and single mom Cybil Waingrow and her son Jesse constantly confounding things, Michael must track down Murphy.Written by

During the casino robbery, the off-duty police officer who gets his hand caught in the elevator identifies himself as "Vegas PD." The law enforcement in Las Vegas has been called the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department since the 70s, and a real officer would have identified himself as "Metro Police." See more »
I said get a couple of guys, Jack. A couple of guys.
He is a couple of guys.

What the? This movie was so bad, I thought that the Brady Bunch episode where Bobby got lost in the Grand Canyon was more intense! What is this movie's obsession with jarring camera angles? It was like a Spike Jonze album on speed. I can't believe there was a crew for this movie. This was 30 million dollars well spent. Kevin Costner was having a Sealy Posturepedic morning, and the "impersonators" were in the film for nine minutes, total. I want to take a shower and wash off this movie! Rating: 3/10 (I've got an idea for a movie: THE JETSONS: AFTER THE APOCALYPSE)
