Filmed as PAYDIRT, this lackluster suburban sitcom has the constrained feel of a filmed stage play, like a second-rate farce barely worth summer-stock revival.
Willis Embry (Jeff Daniels), a do-gooder prison psychiatrist at a New Jersey pen, hears the confession of a dying lifer: $8.5 million of untraceable mafia money lies buried beneath the foundation of a certain Cherry Hill home on a quiet residential street. Embry writes down the address, but some
of his other patients--inmates in the adjacent cell--are eavesdropping. Later, they break out of the joint and head for Cherry Hill, but not before bombing Embry's apartment to ensure there's no competition.
