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.

Held Up is a movie that will only be liked by those few hard-core Jamie Foxxfans. Yes, it has its funny parts, but they are few and far between. Theidea of a man being dumped by his woman, then having his car stolen, andthen actually being caught in the middle of a robbery is somewhatludicrous.

Jamie Foxx is funny in the movie, as he is in all his movies, and with alittle help from the sexy Nia Long, who by the way you almost forget is INthis movie, together they make the movie almost bearable. The problem withJamie Foxx's movies is that they have no feasible plot, and they just stickany comedic situations in to just try and buy a laugh from the viewers.

Now don't get me wrong, I do think that Jamie Foxx is funny, I just thinkthat he needs to choose his scripts better. This movie is a sad attempt atcreating a believable storyline. If a movie has `lucked out' and made youlaugh a couple of times does it make that movie a good movie? NO! And allthe laughs in the world couldn't save this one. Steer clear of this JamieFoxx flick, and let's just hope that the soon to be released `Bait' will bebetter. Don't count on it.

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.

I really had no expectations going into this movie, but it turned out to bethe most painfully boring, humorless movie-going experience I've had so farthis year. The script is completely unfunny, and as good as the castmembershave been in other projects, they can't salvage this mess. What it boilsdown to is that we end up stuck in a convenience store in the middle of thedesert with a group of thinly-written and annoying characters. I didn'tcarefor Clerks, but it now looks like a masterpiece compared to HeldUp.
