McWade plays a wealthy steel company executive with a wife who will not let him drink or smoke, a daughter gone wild, and a ne'er-do-well son. Desperate for some family attention, McWade hires gangster LaRue to kill him. But LaRue cannot bring himself to murder McWade and stages a phony

kidnaping. This way he hopes to scare the family and make them realize how much they love and need the old man. Of course he does not count on falling in love with Hyams, McWade's daughter. McWade is funny, carrying an otherwise simplistic programmer. It has its entertaining moments but is

ultimately standard stuff.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
