Seeking the gunrunners who killed his partner, undercover cop
Derrick Vann (Samuel L. Jackson) sets up a sting. He arranges to meet an
arms dealer at a diner, where he'll be the only one reading USA Today.
But dentist Andy Fiddler (Eugene Levy), who's in Detroit for a
conference, is there reading the same paper, and the
dealer mistakes him for Vann and sets up the deal. When Vann realizes
this, he drags the baffled Andy into the operation, forcing him to pose
as the fake buyer.
