Best Laid Plans Movie Review

Straight-to-video movies usually do so for a reason, but Best Laid Plans just may have gotten a bum rap. Centered around a complicated scheme between Nivola and Witherspoon (fiesty as ever, here) to steal a valuable Civil War artifact in order to pay back the subject of an earlier crime, things get progressively more complicated until the enexorably uninspired conclusion. While it's a relatively tepid thriller, Best Laid Plans actually had me sit up on the edge of my seat once, and any chance to see Witherspoon in handcuffs is certainly an opportunity not to be missed.
