Held Up (1999)

While they're on holiday in the US Southwest, Rae finds out her man Michael spent their house money on a classic car. She promptly dumps him and hitches a ride to Vegas for a flight home. A young thug then steals Michael's car, leaving him at the `Zip and Sip', a convenience store, just as three bumbling robbers stage a holdup. Two take off with the cash, stranding the third with a mysterious crate just as the police arrive.
