Take one resentful reporter named Harry Barber (Woody Harrelson), who's just spent two years in jail on a trumped-up charge. Add a greedy, slutty schemer named Rhea (Elisabeth Shue), her underage sexpot of a stepdaughter, Odette (Chloe Sevigny), and a rich old man who happens to be Rhea's husband and Odette's dad. Now concoct a ludicrous fake kidnapping plan that requires Harry to make some threatening phone calls and pick up a briefcase full of cash. Do you suppose this all goes smoothly, or do you imagine that somehow Harry finds his neck in an ever-tightening noose without the slightest idea how it got there? Based on the novel Just Another Sucker
