Rush Hour

Plot hole: The kidnappers initially ask for a ransom of $50 million. $20 million in $20s, $20 million in $50s, and $10 million in $10s. This translates to a grand total of 2.4 million bills (pieces of paper, that is) Every bill of American currency is 2.61 inches wide, 6.14 inches long, and .0043 inches thick. This makes roughly 2,791 bills to form a 1 foot tall stack. This means that the 2.4 million bills would take up a space of 96 cubic feet (assuming they are packed as tightly as possible). Also, since 490 bills make 1 pound, the 2.4 million bills would weigh (interestingly enough) just over 2.4 tons. No way they can move it.
