DOWN & DIRTY:
Suspense/Thriller: Having received evidence concerning a government-based murder, a lawyer finds his life turned upside down.

NITTY GRITTY:
Robert Dean (WILL SMITH) is a Washington, DC-based labor lawyer hoping to expose a local mobster, Pintero (TOM SIZEMORE). With evidence supplied by his informant contact, Rachel Banks (LISA BONET), Dean puts the squeeze on Pintero who threatens to kill him unless he confesses to his informant's identity.

Meanwhile, a high-ranking National Security Agency official, Thomas Reynolds (JON VOIGHT), has a congressman (JASON ROBARDS) killed. The congressman opposed a new surveillance bill.

After the murder, Reynolds discovers a hidden camera has captured the whole event on videotape. They try to kill the camera's owner, photographer Daniel Zavitz (JASON LEE), who is preparing to take it to the press. During a chase, Zavitz runs into Dean and secretly places the video in his shopping bags.

Reynolds sends a group of covert operatives, including Krug (JAKE BUSEY), Pratt (BARRY PEPPER), Jones (SCOTT CAAN), Fiedler (JACK BLACK) and Jamie (JAMIE KENNEDY), to discover what Dean may know about the video. In the process, they destroy his life by having him lose his job, his credit, and his wife.

Dean goes to Rachel and finds that she's in the same predicament, but she tells him about Brill (GENE HACKMAN), a former intelligence operative.

THE ENDING:
Rachel is killed and Dean realizes that Brill may be the only person able to help him. They get together and turn the tables on Reynolds by planting listening devices and surveillance cameras on him.

They trick Reynolds and his thugs into going to Pintero's hangout where they get into a gun battle and all the bad guys are killed.

Dean and Brill survive and go their separate ways.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
Paranoia. A government agency that can ruin your life? Haven't they ever heard of the Internal Revenue Service?
