Movie Info

Adapted from a true story, dockworker Joey Coyle (John Cusack) finds over $1 million, which fell from an armored car. Instead of returning the money, he embarks on a spending spree unchecked by the wishes of his friend (Michael Rapaport) and hires a crime ring to launder the money. The detective assigned to the case (Michael Madsen) follows his increasingly distinct tracks.

The problem here is that Menendez keeps steering this story into slapstick, when it's really quite tragic.

Cusack saves the fairly pedestrian material.
