About the Movie
From Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Usual Suspects, this wickedly off-beat mix of crime, comedy and gunplay stars Ryan Phillippe and Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro. Convinced they'll score big money fast by kidnapping a young surrogate mother (Juliette Lewis) carrying the child of a wealthy Southwestern couple, the two small caliber crooks soon run into major problems. Realizing too late that they're in over their heads, the kidnappers fight to keep their plan from unraveling amid rising time of bloodshed, mind games and greed.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Stylish and intelligent.
Fresh: McQuarrie has a gift for curveball casting.
Rotten: McQuarrie has inserted some of the most groan-worthy dialogue outside of the porn world.
Rotten: In a way, [McQuarrie] almost seems motivated by the same things that drive his killers: desperation and loot.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen... right up there with The Cell.
A good film!
One of my favorite movies of all time. If you like Kill Bill, Heat, Westerns, Last Man Standing, etc. You will love this movie also.
Black Comedy and Action
Del Torro is great and there are scenes in this movie that I watched multiple times for either action or comedic enjoyment. The plot includes kidnapping, a roadtrip, some clever cat & mouse engagement and lots of good dialog and deadpan bravado.
