I haven't seen it yet, but surely IMDB's plot description is wrong!


Plot description:
Mary Walsh delivers boyfriend Kevin to a hospital for routine outpatient surgery. But when Mary returns to take him home, he's mysteriously vanished. An administrator can find no record of him, and a police search turns up nothing. Increasingly frantic, Mary's taken to staff psychiatrist Dr. Bensley, who pronounces her unstable. Now she must not only find her missing boyfriend, but prove her own sanity as well. When a stranger informs her he knows Kevin's whereabouts and demands a $10 billion ransom, she has one hour to comply... and her boyfriend's life hangs in the balance. Forced to embezzle the money from the bank where she works, Mary soon discovers the shocking truth behind the disappearance. Now time is running out and she must take matters into her own hands to save herself.


10 BILLION?!! Even if it's supposed to be 10 million, it still sounds highly implausible. And an hour to do so? Wtf?

I just saw the movie yeah its 10 million.

Seriously? For a boyfriend? That's blood relative money, at best. I'd just have to get another gf or in her case another bf.

haha - and they'd only been dating for four months....

I'm glad to see someone added the time line of their relationship to this post. A boyfriend of four months, whom you're willing to not only steal 10 million dollars from your employer for, but possible legal prosecution. I'm not sure how someone that intelligent or employed in such a position would be so ignorant. The police weren't interested in the investigation due to their short period of time "dating" but apparently she's willing to hand over 10 million dollars in hopes for his release? Unbelievable.

Everyone is missing the point on this. She did NOT transfer the money and I don't she necessarily intended to. What she did was set up a pending transfer of the funds, but she gave herself an out which was that she had a period of time where she could cancel the transaction, which of course is what she eventually did. She relied on the fact that her adversaries didn't have enough computer and banking expertise to understand that a period of time would have to pass before the transfer would be final. I think she always intended to reverse the transfer when her bf was released.
