'Twas the night before Christmas and Murray Crown (Arnold), owner of the Regal Crown Casino, is spreading anything but Christmas cheer. To keep his accountant Leo (Gross) from ratting him out to the feds about his not-so-legal financial reporting, Murray hires George (Nelson), Vincent (Turturro) and Joey (McClintock) to permanently shut him up -- and to find out where Jake Marley (Josh Berry), his partner in crime and the casino's drummer, is hiding out.

On their way back from burying Leo in the desert, the three wise guys swerve to avoid hitting a stranded motorist, an eight and-a-half month pregnant stunner named Mary (O'Keefe). Her tale of woe tugs at the heartstrings of the hired thugs. They drive Mary to the bus station, give her some money for her trip home and see her off. But not everything is the way it seems. They soon learn that Mary is at the heart of their mission and Murray wants her back. George, Vincent and Joey track her down, but the expectant mother is crafty and manages to give them the slip. (thanks to Cecilia for the information).
