Lucky Break

2

From the maker of The Full Monty" boasts the publicity material for writer-director Peter Cattaneo's sophomore movie. But don't let that fool you. A prison escape yarn that's more tragi than comic, it revolves around two inept bank robbers (James Nesbitt and Lennie James) who get sent to a penitentiary run by a musicals-fixated governor (Christopher Plummer). Beautiful psychologist Olivia Williams, meanwhile, is on hand as The Love Interest. From there on it's all prison musical rehearsals, burgeoning romance and escape plans... All of which combine in an entirely unhilarious manner.
