The story begins when bank robber Carl Quigley (Miguel Ferrer) escapes from jail. Miguel José Ferrer (born February 7, 1955) is a Screen Actors Guild Award -winning American Actor, who is often typecast Soon after his prison break Quigley enters a warehouse and recovers $1,000,000 he had hidden there sometime before his arrest (it is unclear exactly how he illegally obtained the money). Quigley, with the help of assailants "Juice" (Tone Lōc) and bank president Mr. Tone Lōc (sometimes alternatively spelled Tone Loc or Tone-Lōc, with the second part of the name regardless of spelling pronounced like the "loc" in Biderman (Michael Lerner), devises a money laundering scheme where Quigley will exchange the bills from his hidden "nest egg" (which have been watermarked by the FBI) for unmarked bills in Biderman's bank. Michael Lerner (born June 22, 1941) is an Academy Award -nominated American Character actor. Money laundering is the practice of engaging in financial Transactions in order to conceal the Identity, source and/or destination of Money,
After Quigley visits Biderman in his bank office to discuss his plan (along with threatening Biderman's family if he does not comply with it), Quigley explains that Juice will be stopping by Biderman's office with a check to be cashed for $1,000,000 the next day. After the meeting, Quigley runs over Preston Waters' (Brian Bonsall) bicycle while he was riding it in the bank's parking lot. Brian Eric Bonsall (born December 3, 1981 in Torrance California) is a former Child actor. Pressed for time as he sees a police car patrolling the area, Quigley gives the boy a signed blank check and tells him to give it to his parents so they can buy him a new bike. A blank cheque ( blank check, carte blanche) in the literal sense is a Cheque that has no numerical value written in but is already signed Instead, the boy writes himself a check for $1,000,000 by printing it on his computer. Preston goes to the bank the following day and is directed to Biderman's office by a teller (as the teller could not approve a check that size themselves). Thinking that Preston is Quigley's assistant, Juice, Biderman cashes Preston's check with money from a safe hidden behind a painting. As Preston is leaving the bank, the real Juice enters Biderman's office with another check for $1,000,000. Realizing that Biderman mistook Preston for Juice, the trio begins a frantic search for Preston. Meanwhile, Preston embarks on an extreme shopping spree over the course of 6 days, buying a castle-style house (by outbidding Quigley using the voicebox on his computer over the phone) along with many other expensive items (limousine service, go-kart track, water slide, etc. A castle is a defensive structure seen as one of the main symbols of the Middle Ages. ). He spends $999,675 of the original $1,000,000. Preston covers himself by saying he is making these purchases for a millionaire known only as "Macintosh" who lives in the castle house (named after Preston's Macintosh Performa 600). The Macintosh IIvi was a short-lived model of the Macintosh II series of Macintosh computers from Apple.
The entire time, Preston was being investigated by FBI agent Shay Stanley (working undercover as a teller at Biderman's bank) for money laundering as the bills Preston was using to make his purchases were Quigley's watermarked stolen bills. Money laundering is the practice of engaging in financial Transactions in order to conceal the Identity, source and/or destination of Money, At a birthday party Preston throws for Macintosh that forced Preston into debt (it was also Preston's birthday), he is forced into a showdown with Quigley, Juice, and Biderman. When the trio is confronted by the FBI at Preston's castle house, Quigley claims to be Macintosh. However, with the FBI knowing that Macintosh had been using the watermarked bills, they arrest Quigley (who is pretending to be Macintosh), Juice, and Biderman.
