Flypaper follows Bank Cashier Kaitlin (Ashley Judd -Double Jeopardy
) & customer Tripp (Patrick Dempsey -Grey's Anatomy
) making a withdrawal just before closing time, when suddenly the Bank is attacked by two, yes two, very different groups of Bank Robbers. A sleek highly professional trio in the shape of Darrien (Mekhi Phifer- ER
), Weinstein (John Ventimiglia -The Sopranos
) & Gates (Matt Ryan -Layer Cake
). And the complete disorganised Country Bumpkins duo of Peanut Butter (Tim Blake Nelson -O Brother Where Art Thou
) & Jelly (Pruitt Taylor Vince -Identity
). Thanks to the intervention of Tripp, he manages to convince the robbers to work togher rather then kill each other & himslef in the crossfire, however tensions between them dont stop there as the duo have a very unconventional & crude approach to bank robbing, compared to the high tech trio.
During the initial Bank heist kerfuffle one of the customers is killed though, which seems to facinate Tripp, who after not getting his meds for his OCD like behaviour, then goes on to become what can only be described as a cross between t.v Detectives Columbo & Monk. As he starts to slowly deduce that something very sinister is going on, that only he belives & has to prove to the others, but will they listen ?!
In conclusion I thought this film was a good laugh in places & I really enjoyed the twist in the story as it moved along. The films cast is made up of allot of well known faces, that you will recognise from this or that film/t.v show over the decades. with the likes of Jeffrey Tambor(does he not age ?!- The Hangover), Oscar Winner Octavia Spencer(The Help)& Curtis Armstrong (Moonlighting) etc.. I found it enjoyable, nothing exceptional, but I would still reccomend watching it if you get the chance too, it's story is certainly different. Reccomended.
