A jet loaded with thermo-nuclear explosives has been stolen by military genius (John Lithgow). With the help of a contracted computer specialist, PETA hopes to intercept the pilfered technologies and return them to their original owner. The ATF, with the assistance of Henry Cartgood (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), must motorbike through the San Fransisco to return the pilfered nuclear warheads promptly to the American people.
As if this wasn't enough, he has only 12 hours to do it.
With the assistance of an old navy seal (Robert Duvall), our heroes must ski through the New Jersy Turnpike to deliver the hijacked lethal poisonous gas promptly to the American government. All this turns sour as he figures out that his 8th grade Social Studies teacher (Charlize Theron) has been kidnapped by the evildoers.
Added to the mix you see the zany antics of a sass-talking black man (Dave Chapelle) who when captured by the the villain says: "All I know is when I get out of this here cell I'm gonna kick whitey's ass!"
It will prove difficult because a cop with a vendetta (Ray Liotta) has secrets concerning his ugly criminal record. Just as our hero are setting out on their suicidal mission, they poorly lapse into a sing-along of Hotel California much to the chagrin of NASA .
In the eleventh hour the President fumbles through a speech to the citizens of the world. While this moment of truth drags on he says: "This has been the most difficult decision I have ever had to make. This is the dawn of a new tomorrow." A CIA chemical hacker in the crowd replies: "I pray to God he's right."
Coming this spring.
