Product Description:

A Pulitzer Prize-winning black playwright is mistaken for a thief when he moves into his new home on an exclusive new England resort island. Enter a career criminal and incorrigible wiseguy who's got one chance to get out of jail: just save the corrupt police chief's job by breaking into the playwright's house, taking him hostage and then giving up.

Plot Synopsis:

This racially-charged farce stars Nicolas Cage and Samuel L. Jackson. When Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Andrew - who happens to be black - is seen entering a resort mansion by a bigoted police chief, the chief mistakenly assumes he is breaking in. Fearing Andrew has hostages, the chief calls out the cavalry.
But the playwright actually owns the home. By the time the chief realizes his mistake, it's too late. A cast of characters, including a fire-and-brimstone breathing black preacher, a nosy couple, and a namby-pamby hostage negotiator, have already set up camp on the playwright's lawn.
The chief compounds matters by ordering a jailbird car thief, Amos, to pretend to be the "real" menace in return for freedom. But Amos gets more than he bargained for when he's forced to match wits with the sophisticated Andrew for control of the mansion.
