Three fraternal (i.e. brothers) bank robbers languishing in jail, discover a profitable way to spend their time. Crime can most certainly pay, if you "know what I mean?". Hard experience and an unspoken bond of family have made them masters of their craft - armed robbery. It's a job and they do it because they're good at it. Their only rule is, no one gets hurt. Keeping the wheels of crime turning is their long-time criminal lawyer, whose network of contacts reaches the highest level, enabling him to play the brothers and the system to perfection. But success has clearly gone to his head when he begins an affair with Dale's wife. Dazzled by her physical attractiveness, Frank has severely underestimated the brain underneath the blonde. Carol is one of life's greatest operators and she is determined to get what's hers, even if it means jeopardizing the intense bond she shares with her husband. The brothers are out only long enough to do one job before they are back behind bars because of a problem with the 'paperwork'. They must do a really big job if it is to be their last. Dale's festering suspicion about Frank's motives, and a bout with food poisoning, create an impossible situation leading up to a multi-million dollar heist. However when sex and greed rear-up between the good crims and the bad cops, the consequences are both bizarre and fatal.
It's the old bank heist schtick again - where would the movies be without heists. Good cast could lift this above average.
