With a cast that includes the likes of Justin Timberlake, Sharon Stone, Bruce Willis, Harry Dean Stanton, Lukas Haas and Ben Foster: this kidnap-and-murder film is based on true happenings of 2000.

Though only 19 years old, drug dealer Johnny Truelove (Emile Hirsch) already has his own three bedroom house and owns an expensive car. His father, Sonny Truelove (Bruce Willis), is his marijuana supplier.

When friend and partner Jake Muzursky (Ben Foster), fails to collect on one of Johnny’s drug debts: Frankie (Justin Timberlake) and Tiko (Fernando Vargas) exact revenge by kidnapping Jakes youthful-looking younger brother, Zach (Anton Yelchin), who claims to be 17. Zach is hardly what one would call an unwilling hostage, being only too happy to get away from the influence of his mother, Olivia Muzursky (Sharon Stone). But then things start to go wrong…

Were this film made thirty years ago, the Sharon Stone role would have been played by Shelley Winters!
Gangsta life on a white tip as good white boys pretend to be bad black boys. Johnny Truelove (Emile Hirsch) is the leader of a pack of small-time hoods in late 90s Claremont , California. These white boys strut around, smoking dope, talking like the protagonists in the heavy rap songs they listen endlessly to and calling everyone in sight 'bitch'. They're not particularly impoverished, they live in pretty nice areas and don't have much need to resort to crime but they do anyway and when finally called upon to put up or shut up they go a step too far. Jake Mazursky, (Ben Foster) a fellow dealer has failed to repay a loan and furthermore failed to respect The Truelove. To make sure Jake knows he means business, Johnny and his pals Elvis (Shawn Hatosy), Bobby 911 (Alex Solowitz) and Frankie (Justin Timberlake) kidnap Jake's younger brother Zach (Anton Yelchin). Wantonness ensues as the tenure of this kidnapping turns into one long party in which, for example, Zach loses his virginity in a threesome. An ensemble cast sees Bruce Willis do a turn as Truelove's dad and elsewhere Sharon Stone and Harry Dean Stanton also turn in bit parts.
