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.

The Reviews for Held Up (1999) 720p

Another Jamie Foxx movie that should be missed.Reviewed bychrisbrown6453Vote: 5/10

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

Jamie Foxx is funny in the movie, as he is in all his movies, and with a little help from the sexy Nia Long, who by the way you almost forget is IN this movie, together they make the movie almost bearable. The problem with Jamie Foxx's movies is that they have no feasible plot, and they just stick any 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 think that he needs to choose his scripts better. This movie is a sad attempt at creating a believable storyline. If a movie has `lucked out' and made you laugh a couple of times does it make that movie a good movie? NO! And all the laughs in the world couldn't save this one. Steer clear of this Jamie Foxx flick, and let's just hope that the soon to be released `Bait' will be better. Don't count on it.

This movie had to be the most poorly written, asinine movie I have ever seen. The plot was awful and the acting was even worse. The beginning sets the pace as Jamie Foxx and girlfriend (gorgeous) are driving through the desert talking about things that aren't funny and are not relevant to the story. She ends up leaving with a bunch of rednecks for reasons that I couldn't understand and Jamie is left in the dust at the gas station. From then on hardly anything happens worth mentioning. The hostage situation ends when the local cops purchase a charter bus for a small group of people. I didn't understand this part. The town was said to be broke, so why didn't they purchase an old van or something? Whatever. My point is don't watch it unless you are amused by bad writing and acting.

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.
