Karen McCoy (Kim Basinger) is released from prison with nothing but the clothes on her back. Before being incarcerated, Karen was the bank robber of her time, but now she wishes for nothing more than to settle down and start a new life.
Unfortunately, between a dirty parole officer, old business partners, and an idiot ex-husband, McCoy will have to do the unthinkable to save her son (Zack English) and new heartthrob J.T. (Val Kilmer): Another bank job.

The film earned negative reviews from critics and was a box office bomb. The Real McCoy currently holds a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 15 reviews. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave it 2 stars, saying, "... "The Real McCoy" took me back to... heist movies where a bank vault was subjected to high-tech manipulations by athletic super-crooks... those same scenes apparently took the film's authors back to the very same sources, since "The Real McCoy" recycles the same devices, not quite as well as the originals."
