Jamie Foxx has nothing but trouble when his girlfriend (Nia Long)leaves him after a fight in desolate Arizona and then his car getsstolen. Foxx then has more good luck by being held hostage at aconvenient store after a botched robbery by ringleader Eduardo Yanez.Country-hick sheriff Barry Corbin becomes the negotiator in thislight-hearted "Dog Day Afternoon"-styled fiasco. Admittedly hilariousto an extent, but begins to drag its feet late with plot resolution anda somewhat dramatic twist. Foxx is on the ball when it comes to hiscomedic timing and execution, but the flick is really beneath his widerange of talents. Adequate little time killer and truly funny---if youare in the right mood. 2.5 out of 5 stars.

The Synopsis for Held Up (1999) 720p
While they're on vacation in the Southwest, Rae finds out her man Michael spent their house money on a classic car, so she dumps him, hitching a ride to Vegas for a flight home. A kid promptly steals Michael's car, leaving him at the Zip & Sip, a convenience store. Three bumbling robbers promptly stage a hold up. Two take off with the cash stranding the third, with a mysterious crate, just as the cops arrive. The robber takes the store hostage. As incompetent cops bring in a SWAT team and try a by-the-book rescue, Michael has to keep the robber calm, find out what's in the crate, aid the negotiations, and get back to Rae. The Stockholm Syndrome asserts its effect.

This movie was okay. It made me laugh out loud more than once. It washowever VERY slow moving in parts. I fell asleep watching it on Fridaynight, but it was decent enough that on Saturday morning I found where Idozed off and continued watching it.
A good point is that the movie manages to be moderately funny without beingcrude or overly sexual... That's hard to find these days. The biggestnegative is that virtually the entire plot occurs in one spot, and you getvery little change of scenery throughout the entire movie.
If you're looking for continuous laughs, this may not be the movie for you. But if you can endure the slow parts, the humor will sporadicallyappear.
I saw this film aboard a bus, in November of 2000, on my way from theTallahassee Amtrak station and Walt Disney World (the tracks were beingworked on). I was thus a captive audience for the bus driver's taste inmovies; otherwise, I never would have seen it.
It's hard to imagine that Barry Corbin and John Cullum (from NorthernExposure), and Julie Hagerty (from the Airplane movies) would have wastedtheir time with anything this bad: nobody could be that hard up forwork.
That's not to say that the movie didn't get a few laughs from me, and fromthe other passengers on the bus. But we weren't laughing WITH it; we werelaughing AT it.
