Story


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 named Peanut Butter (Tim Blake Nelson) and Jelly (Pruitt Taylor Vince) - 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..although tempting enough to initially attract audiences, this caper comedy may have trouble getting them to stick around, despite a starry cast..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..Flypaper mingles these two parties with the bank staff, but the sprawling ensemble yields to a story that's so heavily worked-over, it doesn't get much of a chance to breathe..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V. Club]
“..unremarkable addition to the already overcrowded heist genre, one unlucky bank gets hit twice..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
