Excess Baggage is a 1997 kidnapping caper about a spoiled girl's dangerous need for attention. Emily Hope (Alicia Silverstone) wants her millionaire father, Alexander (Jack Thompson), to prove he cares and values her. Her latest bratty scheme is to fake her own kidnapping. She sends a ransom note to her dad, hides herself in the trunk of her car and awaits a tearful reunion. Meanwhile, criminals Vincent (Benicio del Toro) and Greg (Harry Connick Jr.) specialize in high-end car thefts. They take Emily's fancy BMW without realizing the cargo in the back of the car. Once they discover her, Emily convinces them that they can have the million dollar ransom if they play along. She also finds herself falling for the handsome Vincent. Meanwhile, her dad sends Raymond (Christopher Walken), his right hand man, to solve the problem. Director Marco Brambilla ("Demolition Man") takes a fresh and funny approach to this criminal caper.
