Bank on It

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This comedy went straight to video but actually fares much better than some recent theatrically released stuff. Three bank workers individually plan to rob their place of work over the same weekend. Alicia Silverstone does it to get revenge on her boss with whom she's had an affair, Woody Harrelson does it to get revenge on a particular customer (John Cleese) who hunts and kills ducks and Paulo Costanzo plans to borrow some money, go to Vegas, double it and return it before anyone finds out. Rachael Leigh Cook and Marcus Thomas also turn up to cause trouble, but don't quite fit in with the rest of the movie. The clever twists, excellent cast and occasional laughs make this one definitely worth renting.
