The thrilling world of banking explodes across the silver screen! Harrison Ford is a bank security manager who gets more than he bargained for when a cold-blooded thief (Paul Bettany) breaks the little chain and steals the pen that belongs to the desk where most customers fill out their deposit slips! And as if that weren't enough, he ups the ante, nearly emptying the entire pot of complimentary coffee into his giant, one-liter travel mug that he got from the Tom Thumb!
His reign of terror continues as he gets in line for the teller and begins to fill out his deposit slip only after he gets to the counter! Oh, there are gunfights and fisticuffs and intrigue and Virginia Madsen playing put-upon wives and whatnot, but mostly, this is thrilling, non-stop, ink-spilling banking at its best!
The bottom line on this ledger shows an aggregate surplus of laughs, as Mike is joined by Kevin Murphy for one fiscally sound RiffTrax!
RiffTrax are downloadable audio commentaries featuring comedian Michael J. Nelson heckling (or riffing)
films in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The RiffTrax are sold on a web site where users can
purchase and download the commentaries. The site was launched by Nelson and Legend Films in 2006 and is
based in San Diego.
The movies chosen to riff in Mystery Science Theater 3000 were predominantly low-budget B-movies because
the show itself was low-budget and producers could only afford films with expired copyright or had
otherwise cheap licenses. The idea of RiffTrax came about after Mystery Science Theater 3000 was
cancelled when Nelson researched and consulted a lawyer about the possibility of directly releasing
DVDs of films with the commentaries included, but realized that he would be "sued out of existence".
The best-sounding method of distributing the commentaries would be to sell them independently of
the films to avoid having to obtain the rights to distribute the movies themselves. There would be
no legal or monetary restrictions to prevent Nelson from producing them, though viewers would have
to provide the movies themselves.
