THE GREAT BANK ROBBERY HOSTAGE CRISIS – COMEDY ABOUT BANK ROBBERY
When a gang of notorious bank robbers hold up the local bank in a small town in North Carolina, they don’t realise that, being a small town, the only person with a key to the vault is the manager and it’s his day off. Things go even more wrong when they find they’re surrounded by the police, with no manager and no money and a woman inside the bank who is about to go into labour. Not to mention the old age pensioner who’s day has been completely ruined because she’s going to miss her hair appointment. Or the undercover cop.
