Editorial Reviews

Three Small time crooks who happen to be brothers (Nicolas Cage, Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz) pull of a bank robbery in a town called Paradise. As they desperately try to get out of town, the three became trapped by a snow storm and the unexpected kindness of the townsfolk. They soon realize they have no choice but to put all the money they've stolen back in the bank. Now if they can just slip away from their new friends long enough to break back in.

This is a very funny movie.

This is one of our "untraditional" family Christmas movies that we love to watch every year.

I've been waiting patiently forever for this movie to finally come out on DVD. Nicholas Cage, John Lovitz and Dana Carvey make this movie utterly hilarious throughout. Cage plays the typical normal, logical, calculating brother of the 3. John Lovitz is the brother you can never trust and Carvey is a goofy, klepto-maniac who hardly uses any common sense. When these 3 come together in a scene it's hard to imagine something funny "not" happening. 3 Diverse and conflicting personalities make for a great comedy farse!

Way back in 1990 something when this movie came out, it was screened as a student feature at the college I was attending at the time prior to it's release in theathers. I went with a good friend of mine, and we seemed to be the only people in the theater laughing. After the movie hit theaters, all of the reviews were negative as if the movie featured a cast of unknowns instead of three very well established entertainers, two of whom are very gifted comedians. While all three actors have had better roles, they work well together with Cage being the straight man to Lovitz and Carvey's comedic banter. Yes, I realize that the premise of this movie is somewhat far fetched, but that's why it's a movie and not a news story. The movie has its fair share of laughs with a healthy dose of Christmas spirit. It gets watched every holiday season at my house, and I recommend it to anyone who is capable of watching a movie and being OK with the fact that it is a work of FICTION! Anyway, enjoy the movie, the calesthenics schtick by Lovitz during the bank robbery alone is worth the price of admission.

Format: DVD
TRAPPED IN PARADISE is a surprisingly charming and fun to watch movie, that could be enjoyed at Christmas or any time of year. The movie has the feel of one of those forties or fifties charmers, where the bad guys aren't so bad and they become good guys once they realize what life is really all about.

While the leads (Nicolas Cage, Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz) are all very good, the movie's heart lies in the supporting performances: Florence Stanley as the boys' potty-mouthed mom; Donald Moffatt and Angela Paton as the Andersons, the bank president and his wife who unbeknownst to them are having the bank robbers for Christmas dinner; Madchen Amick (Twin Peaks) as the convict's sweet daughter; John Ashton as the redneck deputy; and Richard Jenkins as the putupon FBI agent. The scene where the bus depot clerk gives the duplicitous Cage enough money to get his ticket home is heart tugging, showing just how nice the people of Paradise really are.

Goofy and off the wall, TRAPPED IN PARADISE worms its way into your heart and is one of those critically panned movies that is much better than they thought! Enjoy!

My wife and I enjoyed this movie to rate as one of our

favorites. When you think about this movie, remember

the funny lines and mannerisms from the characters that

didn't need sex or swearing to make this movie oveall

just enjoyable. This movie brought humor and a warm

side to the story. Dana Carvey, nailed this performance

as the total idiot brother, and to see Cages frustration

in dealing with his siblings. It's amazing how many people

never saw or heard of this movie. Definitely a movie that

deserves praise...I rated this movie a 5 for its creativity

without having to bring profanity, violence, or sex to the

screen.

Format: VHS Tape
This is actually quite a charming little holiday movie that is not well known. Nick Cage, John Lovitz and Dana Carvey play three brothers. Lovitz and Carvey just get out of prison and convince their brother to go to little Paradise, Pa during Christmas to deliver a note from a fellow inmate to his daughter.
Of course, the hidden agenda is that they know there is a bank there that is just ripe to be robbed. After convincing Brother Nick who wants to go straight, the three pull off the job.
unfortunately, a huge snow storm prevents them from getting out of town. After their car crashes, they found themselves aided and taken in by no less than the Bank President and his family.
After seeing how nice the people of Paradise are, they decide to try and put the money back. Meanwhile, a mobster inmate has escaped Prison and abducts the brothers mom as the bank job was his idea.
This is really a pretty funny movie. I've wondered why it doesn't pop up more at Christmas time as it does have a very strong Christmas spirit to it.

Format: VHS Tape
3 brothers (Nicholas Cage, Dana Carvey, and Jon Lovitz) heist a bank in a little town known as Paradise. After robbing the bank, Cage, Lovitz, and Carvey find it rather difficult to leave with the money due to the FBI, their kidnapped mother, and two local police officers whose liscence plate begins with DUH! They constantly run into the locals who live a quaint little lifestyle and are always willing to lend a helping hand. With the starring of Cage, Carvey, and Lovitz, you'd think that it would be a hysterical movie. After watching it, the movie does have some funny moments,and the entire idea is kind of quirky, but overall it's not as funny as one would project. However, the movie is very compelling and it sucks you in. It really makes you want to move to Paradise!!! Overall it's a fun and chrarming movie that you could watch snuggled up to your loved one or with your kids.
