Barry Sonnenfeld's comic follow-up to his 1995 hit 'Get Shorty'. Crooked business man Arthur Herk (Stanley Tucci) didn't realise he was so popular until within the space of 48-hours he dodges an assassination attempt, gets caught up in a hold-up by 2 dim-witted criminals (Tom Sizemore and Johnny Knoxville) in a bar where he is doing a nuclear arms deal, and then finds himself on a hi-jacked plane with the nucelar warhead also a hostage. Add to the group of hostages the irrational parents (Tim Allen and Rene Russo) of his daughter's friend, a pair of cops, a couple of FBI agents (Heavy D and Omar Epps), a drifter and a buxom waitress and everyone is confused.
