- Written by: Frank Cappello

Audacious crime caper in which Slater finally gives a leading-man performance that delivers on his early promise in 'Heathers' and 'Pump Up the Volume'. Bob Maconel is a frustrated loser in a dead end job who plans to commit suicide, taking a few of his co-workers with him. Unfortunately, Cappello's desire to continually spring surprises leaves the film punch drunk and wobbly as the characters and plot spiral into an unsatisfying finale.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
