|Plot Summary of Trapped in Paradise|
Bill (Cage) Firpo is an ordinary guy. He is the owner of a beautiful resturant and is doing fine. But, his two brothers are a different story. Dave (Lovitz) and Alvin (Carvey) are criminals. They are finally on probation for the Christmas holidays to see their brother and mother. But when Dave shows Bill a 'letter' that his 'friend' wrote to him and Alvin to go to Paradise, Pennsylvania to find his daughter, they end up on the run from the NYPD. So, against Bill's wishes, they have to go to Paradise. While there, they rob a bank. The people there shower them with kindness and wherever they go, they always end up back in Paradise, even if they hitchhike. I really suggest you see this movie. You might want to get cozy with some ring dings and milk!!
