There's nothing terribly wrong with The Big Squeeze. It ambles along at a nice pace and the performances are adequate, but it offers nothing new or compelling. Tanya (Boyle) slaves as a bartender to support herself and her religious zealot/baseball-player husband Henry (Bercovici), whose leg injury has left him permanently benched. She stumbles upon his secret bank account with $130,000 in it and demands half. When he refuses, Tanya leaves him and collaborates with con man Benny (Dobson) to bilk Henry of what's rightfully hers.
