The film was directed by David Twohy, and written by him. Hemsworth was the star, along with Steve Zahn, Timothy Olyphant, Milla Jovovich (from Resident Evil) and Kiele Sanchez (from Lost). The movie was made with only a $14 million budget, and earned just under $23 million globally in sales. The film had mixed reviews, Rotten Tomatoes called it "smarter than average slasher film", and then claimed it became predictable.

Hemsworth also held a role in the film: Ca$h. After all, A Perfect Getaway did not meet the same level of success as Star Trek did, but that did not stop Hemsworth from getting pulled into role after role. In Ca$h Hemsworth was a mechanic, who happened upon a mysterious briefcase, that had a lot of money. His character, Sam Phelan spent the money, and then found himself owing it back to the people that had lost it and he had to commit crimes to repay it.

According to IMDb the movie's description reads as: "A man meets up with two "good guys" to recover what is unlawfully his, taking them on his whirlwind ride, doing things they never would have imagined, just to survive."
