Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The amusing twists and turns of the script, the multiple instances of bracing humor and consistent tension, help the cast bring this small-scale thriller to the place it clearly wants to be. Well worth seeing, particularly for Leonard people.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Below Average There have been good Elmore Leonard adaptations and bad ones. But this interpretation of his 1978 novel The Switch may be the worst of the bunch. ...the only mystery in this limp caper is why Aniston took such a meh role. At least the kitschy, '70s-era details provide some distraction.

NY Post Full Review
Good Like the unseasonable weather, this late-summer arrival is a breezy and cool affair. Director Daniel Schechter ("Supporting Characters") moves the plot along in a loose, unhurried manner, letting the cast enjoy Leonard's delicious dialogue.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and John Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he'd rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.
