Movie Info

Just out of prison a pair of doltish but hyperactive criminals immediately head off to perform the perfect bank robbery, but before they do, the two pay a visit to their more reformed brother. Though he wants nothing to do with them, they ingratiate themselves and con him into going on a little roadtrip to idyllic Paradise, Pennsylvania, a town that does not seem willing to allow them the easy getaway they had hoped for.more

Critic Reviews for Trapped in Paradise

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

Has enough in the way of sentiment and goofy situational predicaments to put it over as a serviceable family holiday attraction.

Even the weather seems tailored to the script's shifting needs.

Cage looks cold most of the time, and has retractable stubble. The rest of the cast look like they're waiting for summer.

Top Critic

It's a minor holiday miracle that this homey comedy barely elicits even a chuckle.

New York Times
Top Critic

The question is, can a trio of amiable goofballs take you through a movie that's, well, not so great?

Washington Post
Top Critic

Considering that there isn't a single laugh in the whole picture, the term 'comedy' must be used loosely.

Mr Cage seem to be the keeper of a specific knowledge to play "innocent guy" in a Movie even as a gangster. lol. Very Funny Movie.

Three brothers (Nicolas Cage, Jon Lovitz, Dana Carvey) with a streak of lawbreaking in them head to a small town in Pennsylvania called Paradise, intending to rob a ripe bank there. But the people in the community turn out to be so nice that the thought of ripping them off proves difficult to imagine.

A fun and funny movie. Great cast. Definitely not a serious type movie. Watch this just for a laugh and nothing more.
