"...Amiable....[Foxx is] likable and funny....HELD UP is a pleasant diversion..."
Foxx portrays Michael Dawson, a successful Chicago businessman whose life falls apart while he's driving to the Grand Canyon with his gorgeous fiancee, Rae (Long). When Rae discovers that he has used their savings to buy the car, she cuts off the engagement and leaves him behind. Intent on driving back to Chicago to win Rae back, Michael instead finds himself stuck in a hillbilly town when a young punk steals his car. And when a gang of bandits attempts to rob the "Sip & Zip," it's up to Michael to keep the bumbling thieves and incompetent cops from doing real damage to each other.
