About Held Up
Taking his fiancée Rae (Nia Long) on a road trip to the Grand Canyon, Michael Dawson (Jamie Foxx), a bigmouthed Chicago businessman, reveals that he’s spent the $15,000 meant for their new home on a vintage Studebaker, the very car they’re driving in. Incensed; Rae storms out of the vehicle and hitches to Las Vegas. Things go from bad to worse, however, when Michael’s new car is stolen and he enters a local petrol station to call for help. Taken hostage by an inept gunman, Michael’s reduced to putting a gun to his own head to help him win back his freedom and his girl.
