After burglarizing a small-town bank, petty crook Charley Varrick (Walter Matthau) and his motley crew become targets of the mob. Expecting a small score to divide among them, they're shocked to discover a huge sum of money. Once they realize the cash belongs to the mob, Charley and his gang must concoct a plan -- fast! -- to throw the wise guys off their trail, or it's curtains for all of them. Joe Don Baker and Sheree North co-star.
