The film stars Nick Cannon (husband of Mariah Carey and appeared on the show "All That", "Men in Black II" and "Drumline") as Mike Holland, a 19-year-old who wanted to do something with his life but with no money to pay for college, elected to join the US Marines. After completing boot camp, the young soldier is told that his squadron will be sent to Iraq and have a 4-day vacation (96 hours) before leaving.
So, Mike decides to use his 96 hours and go back home to Bakersfield, California. While on the bus, Mike meets Cristina (Melonie Diaz, "Nip/Tuck", "Be Kind Rewind", "Feel the Noise"), a college student who is also returning to Bakersfield to meet with her family. Immediately spending time at the bus, Mike becomes smitten with her and manages to get her phone number.
When Mike arrives home, he is greeted by his good friend Jake (Matt O'Leary, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", "Live Free or Die Hard" and the "Spy Kids" films) who is happy to be reunited with his buddies and plan for a night out with friends in celebration of Mike's return home.Read more ›
So Nick Cannon plays Mike, a confused, lost soul from Bakersfield, CA -- he returns home after his training with some disturbing news about his future, but he chooses not to sully his (last) remaining moments with his family and friends. He discovers the beautiful Cristina (Melonie Diaz) who falls for Mike's wit and fearlessness. Mike also catches up with some of his friends, including his no-good friend Jake (Matt O'Leary) who still manages to flare Mike's temper.
Ultimately, this story is about choices. We all have them. Why do we make stupid decisions? Why do we fall in love? Why, why, why? This movie is not a snore-fest, guys. Seriously, let's see you try to make one better.
Nick Cannon gives an honest, top-notch performance as a young soldier during his final four days before shipping out to the Middle East. The acting is excellent, the dialogue is real, the relationships are believable and the direction is tight.
