Sitting Ducks is a 1980 American comedy film directed by Henry Jaglom. The film follows the adventures of two small-time hoods (Zack Norman and Michael Emil, Jaglom’s real-life brother) who steal a considerable amount of cash from a gambling syndicate. While fleeing by car down the U.S. eastern seaboard for a chartered airplane that will take them to Central America, they pick up a pair of vivacious young ladies and an unsuccessful singer-songwriter.[1][2]

The film competed in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival.[3]
