Strap yourself in for one hilarious action-comedy with great chemistry, great one-liners and expert direction. Bruce Willis makes all the right moves as the man with the perfect bank-robbing plan - and two imperfect partners. Bursting out of prison, Joe (Willis) and Terry (Billy Bob Thornton) are on the run and out of money. That changes when they devise a scheme to place bank managers under house arrest the night before they rob their banks. But success as the infamous "sleepover bandits" isn't the only change in store for them. As they cross the state lines and federal laws, they meet Kate (Cate Blanchett), a sexy, eccentric housewife whose indecision as to which of the two bandits she wants could spoil their partnership for good!
Bruce Willis has perfected the action comedy and this has all the best elements of this in plus some romance drama. It is horribly slap stick and slightly overacted but never too sickly. Blanchett gives it some class and pulls it into a respectable film of a more universal appeal than the adolescent 50 year old men genre.
