Anthony Anderson plays Malcolm King, a wealthy businessman who has built up a lot of enemies over the past, including his soon-to-be ex-wife (Kellita Smith) and his disgruntled employees. He hatches a plan to avoid paying for a messy divorce by staging his own kidnapping with a ridiculously high ransom. He assumes everyone will assume he's broke after that. Naturally things don't go as planned.
KING'S RANSOM (PG-13, 90 minutes) --Contains crude and sexual humor and language. New Line Cinema declined to screen this movie in time for a review. Area theaters.
