"Mmm...Jennifer Connelly."
3 stars

Any little fraulein who expects anything more from me than a little bit of pleasure, a little bit of danger, and a great set of pectorals, she's lookin for a fall right on her ass.

Jim Dodge (Frank Whaley) is a con man. He dresses up in a suit and rides around in a limo, but he can't hold a job. So he gets a job.

At Target.

As a custodian.

Josie (Jennifer Connelly) is the daughter of the richest man on town. She's spoiled. But she's also kind of rebellious. She stays around and gets stuck in the srote with our boy Jim after closing. The two hit it off, but have to stop a couple of petty robbers.

Don't ask why a couple of robbers would go to a Target store.

Some funny moments, and Connelly's hot. But this is also Hughes using a two-bad-guy formula (like he did in the Home Alone movies and every Disney live action rewrite), so you've been warned.

"Are you a slacker?" "No...Presbyterian, actually."
