(Overre)action movie

    Nobody move!  I mean, can I have your autograph?

    Police officers in Philadelphia who came across a shot-up car with exposed wiring inside were about to call the bomb squad when they found out it was a movie prop.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports police stopped this morning in the Old City section when they saw the car riddled with bullet holes and side windows shot out. They also saw wires running from the trunk into the dashboard.

    The officers were ready to close the street and call the bomb squad when a security guard told them it was for a film.
