was a real treat, with a continuing release of laughter. It's
sharp, witty and just plain fun--the kind of film I didn't want
Bruce Willis and Cate Blanchett are just
great, but I thought Billy Bob Thorton stole the show.
The script was well-written, and the actors
were well directed, which makes this film come together.
It never lets up--just fun entertainment.
As crime comedies go, this one might not
be the funniest, but considering the alternatives out there,
it's a cut above the rest.
Cate Blanchett and Billy Bob Thorton are
marvelous, playing off their neurosis to a spectacular degree,
with Bruce Willis doing his typical walk-through performance
in several different toupees.
Slightly long, but interesting offbeat
has a unusual make-up mix. It steals from three or four types:
the screwball comedy, the romantic triangle, the heist caper,
and the buddy movie.
It moves along, stumbling and can't decide
what it wants to be. But all in all and taken as a whole, I found
the picture to be entertaining.
I liked the story about these friendly
crooks, with moments of enjoyable slapstick, clowning and amusing
