ⓘ Flypaper (2011 film)

Flypaper is a 2011 American crime comedy film starring Patrick Dempsey and Ashley Judd, and directed by Rob Minkoff and written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.


1. Plot

A bank is simultaneously attacked by two groups of robbers: three high-tech professionals and two rustic buffoons. One bystander is quickly shot and killed, apparently by accident, and eight hostages taken. One of the hostages, an obsessive-compulsive customer, notices several puzzling details, from which he guesses that the coincidence was intentional: the robbers among others were lured here, with misleading blueprints and defective equipment, so that another criminal – at the top of the FBIs wanted list of bank robbers – could kill them to cover his own trail.

Filming took place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in June 2010. The opening animatic sequence was created by Geefwee Boedoe.
