Here's a direct to video movie I bought back in the day that most have never heard of:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096997/

Very 80's cheese but I had to watch it. Starring Robert Carradine from Revenge of the Nerds, Malcolm McDowell and even Roddy Piper.

Ever see this one?

Here are the details:

Herbie Altman is framed for Stock fraud by his boss when the SEC starts investigating his company. Sent to prison, he helps a fellow inmate successfully invest his money. Soon all the inmates want his help. To manage all the money, he forms CON INC. and runs it from the prison under the noses of the warden and the guards. But when the IRS and SEC begin to investigate this successful company, it looks like he may be in trouble again.

I can't think of any movies it is similar to, and it's not a very good movie. I was just wondering if anyone else saw it.

I'd like to be able to say that I've seen it, but this movie escapes me. I like that it has Rowdy Roddy Piper from the cuit classic "They Live". Also, Tony Plana who has had quite the career.

It had it's moments, but quite a "B" movie. Last time I watched it was over 10 years ago. I'd love to watch it again, but I lost the VHS tape. [Frown]

Watched Buy & Cell and it was a bit disappointing film because the jokes are not funny enough.
Robert Boris directed this one, he co-wrote the 70s classic Electra Glide in Blue and Doctor Detroit among others.

Love the cast though, Michael Winslow is always cool. He´s on tour here in Finland this spring.
