Hey lets mix up bank robbery, romance, action, comedy and mystery in one movie! Sounds quite interesting, doesn’t it? But, in reality, this has to be done with great precision and a perfect script, with solid acting on top of all that, and in Flypaper we see how this mixture almost made it. First of all, for a mystery and who is who movie, the story is developing too fast, leaving viewer concentrated on the things that are happening now, without any time to think and reflect on the actions of the characters, so there goes the mystery, and after it comes comedy. This part is relatively OK, although there are a lot of murders for a comedy movie, but it is all quite silly. This is one of those movies that you watch once in your life and after that, it’s pretty much useless. It’s going to be a fun watching, and the general idea is quite good, but something is definitely missing. Perhaps a strong male lead, Patrick Dempsey was too aloof about this whole acting stuff…

What seemed like a quite normal day at the local bank is soon going to be transformed (eeaaauuuaaa(Transformers noise)) into something very different after a group of highly skilled bank robbers sneaks in. This would be something normal, but at the same time two rednecks also decide to rob the bank and barge in guns blazing. With two bank robberies at the same bank the plot thickens, but after the mysterious death of a man that was waiting his turn at the bank it becomes solid as rock. In the middle of this are the hostages, especially Tripp who is left without his medication and starts to give in to his obsessive-compulsive behavior, trying to figure out what is going on, and at the same time to hook up with hot bank teller (Ashley Judd). They will soon discover that there is more than meets the eye with this whole robbery mess.
