Synopsis

Comedy triple bill. In 'Excess Baggage' (1997), Emily T Hope (Alicia Silverstone) stages her own kidnap in a bid to grab her father's attention. However, when her car is stolen by Vincent Roche (Benicio Del Toro), Emily finds herself on the run for real. Matters are complicated when Emily's ex-CIA 'uncle' (Christopher Walken) sets about tracking her down. Matthew Broderick narrates and stars in the Neil Simon comedy 'Biloxi Blues' (1988), a depiction of army life for a group of new recruits. Drawn from a variety of backgrounds, they find it tough going. Christopher Walken plays Sergeant Toomey, the sadistic drill sergeant who controls their lives. 'Go' (1999) interweaves three separate tales of urban indulgence. Ronna (Sarah Polley) is an eighteen-year-old checkout girl who, together with her reluctant friend Claire (Katie Holmes), organises her first drug deal in order to make the money to pay her rent. Meanwhile, Simon (Desmond Askew) and Marcus (Taye Diggs), after a night out on the tiles, find themselves driving around Las Vegas in a stolen car, attempting to avoid a beating from some angry locals. During which time, respected TV cops Adam (Scott Wolf) and Zack (Jay Mohr), blackmailed by a creepy detective, have become involved in a real-life undercover drugs sting - which brings us back to Ronna and Claire.
