Plot Summary

A self-made, wealthy, black Pulitzer Prize winning playwright is mistaken for a robber as he is moving into his new home in an all-white neighborhood. In an effort to correct his blunder, the chief of police arranges a deal between the playwright and a white career criminal, in which an artificial hostage situation is created and quickly diffused, thereby repairing the damaged public images of both the chief and the playwright and promising to allow the criminal to slip out of town with no questions asked. However, nothing goes as planned and the two are then joined in a humorous look at the serious consequences of racism.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A hhandicapped satirical farce whose roots are not in life but in other, better movies and sitcoms. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Sep 16, 2008

Rotten: A one-joke sketch that doesn't work as a feature. – Lawrence Cohn, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Cage is a font of funny character weirdness. This movie marks the least of his offerings. Jackson, as the relative straight man, has little to work with. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Sep 16, 2008

Rotten: Although the movie strives mightily to teach its lesson, which is that you cannot judge a man by the color of his skin, the humor is undermined by the sadness of the basic situation. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010
