Nothing to Lose

Edition 1997
97' - 1997 - Action, Comedy, Adventure - Dialogue: English
Director: Steve Oedekerk Composer: Robert Folk With: Martin Lawrence, Tim Robbins, John C. McGinley, Giancarlo Esposito
Nick Beam is a high-power advertising executive who comes home to find what looks like to be his wife in bed with another man. Seeing a pair of monogrammed cufflinks on the kitchen counter, Nick realises that his boss and his wife are having an affair. Devastated by the revelation, Nick drives around Los Angeles aimlessly, ending up in the poorer section of town. Lost in a haze of bewilderment, he is an easy mark for Terrence, who holds him up at an intersection. Nick, who doesn't give a damn anymore, floors it, turning the tables on his would be robber and instead taking him hostage on a road trip to Arizona. Out in the desert, it is apparent that Terrence is not as street-smart as he pretends to be and is not very good at being a criminal.
