Synopsis

Storyline:
Michael Chambers returns home to celebrate his mother’s marriage. Michael had been ousted from his home town due to his gambling indiscretions and had left his wife to deal with the mess he created. He now must reassimilate back into the town, renew his relationships with his family and friends (and enemies) and, most of all, seek out his ex-wife to woo her again. In the process, he obtains a job working with his mother’s new husband as an armored car driver. He almost seems the perfect prodigal son as he finds his niche back in the community and his way back into his ex’s heart. His troubles surmount when he and his wife are caught in the act by her hoodlum boyfriend/fiancé. To get out of this predicament, Michael must concoct a plan to heist of a payroll being carried by his armored car company.

User Reviews: With two sets of flashbacks, count them two sets of flashbacks interspersed throughout the movie the last one catching up to where the movie begins in the present, it just makes a garbled mess. Kind of like the last sentence.

I like Peter Gallagher and Elizabeth Shue, but she had such a small role and he couldn’t save the convoluted mess that movie just seems to be told out of sequence like it is.

The cinematography is nice if that’s any consolation! I bought my copy at Walmart for $5.50 and I can’t honestly say I’ll ever watch it again. I can’t recommend it, but I won’t condemn it either.
