Movie Info

In this drama, four bored beach bums from Miami decide to kidnap a Mafioso for kicks and a little extra cash. They are asking $200,000 ransom, but are surprised when no one jumps forward to pay it. This enrages the crime lord who wrests the gun away from his captors, makes a few angry phone calls and gets the ransom upped to $3,000,000. It is paid, and the abductors pick up the cash right under the noses of the FBI. Unfortunately, the bills are marked. The cocky gangster simply burns the loot and walks away.

Critic Reviews for The Happening

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The film as a whole is well made, if a trifle slowly paced, and one or two of the comedy sequences are inspired.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The movie is loaded with slapstick, throw-away lines, and sight gags but occasionally pulls up sharply on a note of pathos.
