Not sure why this is rated as only 2 stars, but we found it to be a fun and funny movie. It's the 'feel good' kind where the bad guys are not all that bad, and everybody is happy in the end. While the story line is a tad predictable, it's played out in a hilariously funny way.
You'll enjoy seeing this movie.

"I've been waiting patiently forever for this movie to finally come out on DVD. Nicholas Cage, John Lovitz and Dana Carvey make this movie utterly hilarious throughout. Cage plays the typical normal, logical, calculating brother of the 3. John Lovitz is the brother you can never trust and Carvey is a goofy, klepto-maniac who hardly uses any common sense. When these 3 come together in a scene it's hard to imagine something funny "not" happening. 3 Diverse and conflicting personalities make for a great comedy farse!"

"This is actually quite a charming little holiday movie that is not well known. Nick Cage, John Lovitz and Dana Carvey play three brothers. Lovitz and Carvey just get out of prison and convince their brother to go to little Paradise, Pa during Christmas to deliver a note from a fellow inmate to his daughter.Of course, the hidden agenda is that they know there is a bank there that is just ripe to be robbed. After convincing Brother Nick who wants to go straight, the three pull off the job.unfortunately, a huge snow storm prevents them from getting out of town. After their car crashes, they found themselves aided and taken in by no less than the Bank President and his family.After seeing how nice the people of Paradise are, they decide to try and put the money back. Meanwhile, a mobster inmate has escaped Prison and abducts the brothers mom as the bank job was his idea.This is really a pretty funny movie. I've wondered why it doesn't pop up more at Christmas time as it does have a very strong Christmas spirit to it."

"TRAPPED IN PARADISE is a surprisingly charming and fun to watch movie, that could be enjoyed at Christmas or any time of year. The movie has the feel of one of those forties or fifties charmers, where the bad guys aren't so bad and they become good guys once they realize what life is really all about.
While the leads (Nicolas Cage, Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz) are all very good, the movie's heart lies in the supporting performances: Florence Stanley as the boys' potty-mouthed mom; Donald Moffatt and Angela Paton as the Andersons, the bank president and his wife who unbeknownst to them are having the bank robbers for Christmas dinner; Madchen Amick (Twin Peaks) as the convict's sweet daughter; John Ashton as the redneck deputy; and Richard Jenkins as the putupon FBI agent. The scene where the bus depot clerk gives the duplicitous Cage enough money to get his ticket home is heart tugging, showing just how nice the people of Paradise really are.
Goofy and off the wall, TRAPPED IN PARADISE worms its way into your heart and is one of those critically panned movies that is much better than they thought! Enjoy!"
