Set It Off
Waiting to Exhale meets Boyz N the Hood. Sick of being victims of a system that treats poor black women as criminals, four plucky Los Angeles women, Stony (Pinkett), Cleo (Latifah), Frankie (Fox) and Tisean (Elise), see crime as their way out and pull off a series of bank robberies. Their heart-wrenching personal tales will have you cheering for them from one frenzied heist to the next. A Cinderella story with bank executive Keith (Underwood) and Stony adds some unnecessary fluff to an unpredictably wild ride.
