A Simple Plan (1998)

An American thriller directed by Sam Raimi, starring Bill Paxton, Billy Bob Thornton and Bridget Fonda.
A trio of friends accidentally crash their truck near a forest. Their dog jumps out of the back to chase the fox that caused the accident and they follow into the woods. There they find a crashed airplane with a bag full of money. They decide to hide the money in one of their homes and if nothing happens, they will split it. The man who holds the money has a wife who gives him bad advice that turns the men against each other.
So, Sam Raimi can do wrong after all. Very few directors are flawless. The plot bored me to tears with lies and taking sides. The characters were dull as well. Even Billy Bob Thornton played a quiet, dorky guy. The video was recorded well, but was generally uninteresting to watch. After watching the whole thing, I restarted and got the foreshadowing about the fox in the hen house. The audio was not to my liking the music was as slow and boring as the plot and the dialogue featured way too much whispering. Overall, a piece of crap. I rate this bad.
