Protecting America's Assets.
|A small-town sheriff witnesses what he believes is a kidnapping and rushes to rescue a woman. The kidnappers turn out to be fbi agents assigned to protect her and deliver her to a big enron-type corruption trial in chicago but are later found to be on the take and are villains who are bent on killing her.|
"...you'll be laughing uproariously... John Anderson, Variety
Editor's NoteStandup comedy phenom Larry the Cable Guy (CARS, BLUE COLLAR TV, DELTA FARCE) brings plenty of girth and mirth to his latest film, the police caper WITLESS PROTECTION. Larry (real name Daniel Lawrence Whitney) plays Deputy Larry Sandler, a small-town sheriff's deputy with good time buddies, a sassy but adoring girlfriend named Connie (Jennie McCarthy), and dreams of being an FBI agent. Providence comes Larry's way when he spots Madeleine Dimkowski (Ivana Milicevic) and concludes that her FBI escorts, led by Yaphet Kotto (HOMICIDE), are not on the level. Larry kidnaps big city snob Madeleine, who is a key government witness against corrupt businessman Arthur Grimsley (Peter Stormare), and resolves to deliver her to the proper authorities in Chicago. Hotly pursued by Kotto's bogus FBI agents, as well as Grimsley's devious security chief (Eric Roberts), Larry and Madeleine must learn to bridge their many cultural differences if they are to make it to the trial alive. Lampooning everything from celebrity adoption habits to Homeland Security, the film cuts a broad swath of unabashed political incorrectness on its cross-country escapade. Farcical and fun, WITLESS PROTECTION aims to prove that, no matter what our backgrounds or biases, nothing brings out the best like doing what's right.
