- Roz, in response
In this romantic comedy a working class Boston thief planning to go legit after just one more score takes along his working class New York girlfriend to help. The scam: deliver a $4 million Matisse to a wealthy New Englander. The problem: they run up against a serious art thief as well as romantic problems that could land them in the hoosegow.
Small-time thief Frank O'Brien has just stolen a Matisse painting... three days before he was supposed to. With the extra time, he takes his fed-up girlfriend Roz to an isolated New England town, in hopes of repairing their troubled relationship. But instead of a respite, Frank and Roz encounter chaos: the FBI is hot on Frank's tail, the locals (one of whom develops a crush on Roz) are a continual nuisance, and the man who hired Frank to steal the painting is antsy for the artwork. Although these are terrible conditions in which to mend a relationship, the belligerent lovers give it their best shot. Will they succeed' Or will Frank get nabbed first'
