The film was shot completely in Montana by Writer/Director Jim Kouf because he just bought a house and was living there along with his current wife, Lynn Bigelow-Kouf, which was not only essential for what Kouf had wanted to do visually but also for budgetary constraints which helped save money since he had shot outside and inside the town of Hamilton and Missoula.

When Max is in the backseat of the car telling Carlos and Ray about the $5000.00 bail, he says it was for "grand theft on the car... Frank must have stolen it", but earlier, when Carlos returns from chasing Nick and tells Max and Ray he found the car, Ray says "He totaled my car?"...so it was Ray's car, not one that Frank stole.

I first saw this movie on cable as I'm sure most of you did. This movie isn't terribly funny but it is entertaining. The greatest advantage that this movie has is it's large and talented cast. Let's go over that cast for a minute.
Fred Gwynne, Corbin Bernsen, Ruben Blades, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Ed O' Neill all put in great performances and don't take their characters too seriously. Although none of these actors is particularly hot at the moment, all are accomplished actors. It's also too bad that Fred Gwynne has passed away. This kind of light hearted heist film can die a quick death if it takes itself too seriously. Fortunately the movie keeps it real and doesn't try to be too serious.
Bottom Line: I have this on VHS because I kept seeing it on TV and I finally broke down and bought it. Now if you like movies that you can watch, enjoy and then forget about, then this is the movie for you.
