Patrick and Max, two down-on-their-luck brothers, decide to steal a valuable painting and sell it on the black market, attributing the heist to 'Mr. Valentine' whom they THOUGHT was a fictional person.
Synopsis:Patrick and Max are brothers. They are like most people. They live check by check to make ends meet, have an exorbitant amount of bills each month, absolutely hate their jobs, and are amateur con-men. Okay, so maybe they're ALMOST like most people. Their jobs as telesales agents for a national TV shopping network have left them frustrated and going nowhere. Their past failed attempts as con artists have left them broke and out of options. The only logical thing left to do is steal a famed painting from their city's acclaimed art museum and sell it on the black market! Right? Right. Once again, Patrick and Max's plans are spoiled when a group of professional thieves have the same heist planned. The museum's curator has put his career and entire financial well-being on faith in this painting's showing and will go to any lengths to retrieve it. A mob boss' life and credibility lies within delivering this painting to his buyer, the painter's son has made it clear that heads will roll should anything happen to this painting, and a struggling reporter won't stop until she breaks the story of a lifetime. So why is everyone looking for the local college professor, Mr. Valentine? Well, that's what he'd like to find out, too. Egos will fly, identities will be mistaken, guns will fire, and reporters will lie. European Hit Men will be hired and... well... Art... has never been so exciting.
