EVA (Shirley Mac Laine), a widow and retired history teacher, enjoys a quiet life in the tiny town of Liberty, Ohio. Everything changes when EVA receives a life insurance check accidentally made out for $5,000,000 instead of the expected $50,000.
At the not-so-gentle urging of MADDIE (), her best friend, EVA deposits the money and takes the chance it offers them to escape from small town life. Their destination is New Orleans and they have every intention of living it up. But their fantasy is short-lived when they awake to discover that they have become media sensations overnight and fugitives from justice, forced to outwit a trio of conmen, led by the Cajun warlord Robichaux, outmaneuver a dogged social security agent VESPUCCI (Alan Arkin) who has teamed up with EVAs daughter, CRYSTAL (Sarah Jessica Parker), and outrun the law.
What they dont expect is to be good at it. Harvey and Bob Weinstein are executiving producing with Weinstein as the domestic distributor
