Critics Consensus

Loaded with talent but borderline unwatchable, Trapped in Paradise will leave viewers feeling the first part of the title and pining for the last.

Fresh out of prison, Alvin (Dana Carvey) and Dave Firpo (Jon Lovitz) pull their brother Bill (Nicolas Cage) back into a life of crime. But the siblings' foolproof bank heist takes a tailspin when Alvin gets lost in the getaway car. That's how the criminal nitwits wind up trapped in the snowbound burg of Paradise, Pa., on Christmas Eve with a bag full of stolen cash. With suspicious police on one side and hospitable townsfolk on the other, could a change of heart be far away?

Audience Reviews for Trapped in Paradise

  • Dec 17, 2012
    The goofball comedy Trapped in Paradise is a fun and entertaining film that is full of holiday spirit. When Bill Firpo's brothers get paroled from prison they con him into pulling a daring Christmas Eve bank heist, but things go wrong as they seem unable to find their way out of the city. Nicolas Cage, Jon Lovitz, Dana Carvey, and Madchen Amick form a great cast that are well suited for this style of comedy. Additionally, the lighthearted humor is well played and works with the cheesy, over-the-top comedic tone that the film is going for. Trapped in Paradise gets a little too wacky now and then, but on the whole it's an enjoyable romp that delivers plenty of laughs.

    Nicholas Cage was OK, Jon Lovitz was hilarious! He truly made this movie but I found Dana Carvey to be extremely annoying.Other then that, It's just something to pass the time when nothing else is on.There were some parts in the movie I liked but I can't even remember what they were.Trapped In Paradise started off horrible & ended the same way it started

    A bit fun and really dumb.

    It got better the second half through. You know those movies where you get so frustrated and aggravated at the main character because you want to like him so bad but he just goes around doing stupid things? That's this movie for the first half. Then it gets better. Unforgettable characters., amusing dialogue, and funny story line.
