Tagline: Two sets of bank robbers. One very sticky heist.
Synopsis: Tripp Kennedy (Patrick Dempsey) ambles into a bank near closing time, just as two different gangs unwittingly converge to rob it. A shoot-out erupts, and Tripp tackles the smart, pretty teller, Kaitlin (Ashley Judd), to protect her. The gangs—one clearly made up of pros and the other a couple of buffoons—have deadlocked themselves in a Mexican standoff. The bank’s security system starts the end-of-day lockdown and seals everyone into the building. As the night evolves, a hilarious game of cat and mouse ensues as Tripp and Kaitlin try to save the day, escape being killed, and avoid falling in love . . . almost. Having established himself as a successful studio director, Rob Minkoff enters the independent arena and incorporates a refreshing twist into the classic setup of the film. Boasting an impressive cast, whose members infuse the taut script with their own specific charm and comedic flare, Flypaper is an entertaining crime caper that is as much fun to watch as it is to figure out.
