The movie stars Freeman as the fun-loving manager of a luxury resort who is king of the castle. Then, Jones' charming ex-military man arrives, threatening his place atop the totem pole. They battle for the ladies' attention, over poker, across the ping pong table, and at golf.
But the two soon need to team up after Freeman reveals he once testified against the mob and is in witness protection!
The movie looks to deploy the same kind of gentle, wink-wink humor of director Ron Shelton's other movies, like "Bull Durham" and "Tin Cup." It's great to see Jones and Freeman square off. Plus, the movie is a who's who of Hollywood veterans, including Rene Russo, Joe Pantoliano, Jane Seymour, and the late Glenne Headly.
