In this darkly comic crime caper, Jennifer Aniston’s socialite wife is kidnapped by a couple of crooks.
John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) demand $1million in ransom from Aniston’s crooked businessman husband (Tim Robbins). However, Robbins wants to get rid of Aniston to be with mistress Isla Fisher and spots the chance to dispense with alimony.
The plot’s nothing special – the film’s based on Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch – but this is very enjoyable thanks to the performances. Aniston is particularly impressive, but all the actors make their mark.
