Goofs

It would be close to impossible for any law firm to draft, finalize, and arrange formal service of a fraud complaint against a billionaire, plus schedule a deposition with him, all in less than one week. A demand for production of documents is usually needed first, with a minimum of two weeks for the plaintiff to respond, then a deposition is scheduled to obtain the plaintiff's testimony about the documents.

A Stinker
27 April 2016 | by j_misunasSee all my reviews

There have been rare occasions where a movie with headliners such as are in this movie agree to act in a poorly written, poorly scripted, complete dog of a movie.

The dialogue, plot, and completely unbelievable circumstances all dovetail into absolute stupidity.

This movie and any media on which it is copied should be burned and the producers should apologize for bringing it to the screen.

There is no way a lawyer would jeopardize his career like this.

There is no way a billionaire could be so easily duped.

There is no way police could be so completely clueless.

The kidnapping team was inept.

There is no back-story on anything or anyone.

Completely random events are depicted to explain nonsensical behavior.

Overall a rating of 2 is being very kind.
