Get set for Big Trouble - and double indemnity - when Oscar® nominees Peter Falk and Alan Arkin star as a wacky pair of insurance swindlers. Golden Globe® nominee Beverly D' Angelo aids and abets the inspired lunacy in Academy Award® nominated director John Cassavetes' riotous farce. The trouble and the laughs start when insurance man Leonard Hoffman (Arkin) decides to send his three sons to Yale. To raise the cash, Leonard gets drawn into a bizarre scheme by Steve Rickey (Falk) and his screwball wife, Blanche (D'Angelo). But their plot to collect on an "accidental" death policy gets sidetracked by a series of hilariously unforeseen twists. Can these unlikely allies pull off the sting before they get stung?

Sprawling comedy has a few laughs in it -- and the specter of recent events hanging over it.
