There was no reason to make this movie. It is so short, it could have been included in the first "Before Sunrise". This is a total waste of time, as the story is boring, not funny not serious, just dumb.

I thought that this movie was going to be an action adventure "thief deal", like all of those movie where high tech theives steal diamonds, the key to an atom bomb or something else of importance. I should have read the c.d. cover. - Woody I thought that this movie was going to be an action adventure "thief deal", like all of those movie where high tech theives steal diamonds, the key to an atom bomb or something else of importance.

I am giving this a 3 because of, that's right, Salma of course. She is smoking hot and always a pleasure to see on the big screen in any fashion. Now onto the film...it sucks.

She is smoking hot and always a pleasure to see on the big screen in any fashion. Now onto the film...it sucks. Brosnan really shows his limits as an actor here, since he sleepwalks through his role here essentially riffing on Thomas Crown but with different lines. Woody Harrelson is spectacularly miscast as an FBI agent here, and the "funny" scenes with him and Pierce is typical straight-guys-who-get-caught-in-situations-that-seem-gay stuff that pretty much every teen-raunch comedy of the past 20 years has done. BTW, for chuckles, has anyone else been getting a kick out of how the studio is advertising the movie on tv as "A BRETT RATNER FILM" as if he were a Woody-like auteur. He he. Expand

What happened here? What a mistake! Let?s get some stars and do something that?s been done a thousand times, but this time, let?s take all the wit out of it.

Let?s get some stars and do something that?s been done a thousand times, but this time, let?s take all the wit out of it. I hoped this movie might bring something new to the table that movies like James Bond don?t. The story follows retired thieves, but one of them is having a hard time giving up his favorite past time. Sounds like it could be interesting? You?re wrong. This thief is being followed by a guy from the FBI, playing annoyingly by Woody Harrelson. Woody falls for a local cop with an accent that?s annoying as Woody himself. Be ready for some stupid twists, bad one liners, and actors with zero chemistry. The only stealing going on here is the $8 I paid for my ticket. Expand

This movie blows worse than "Woody" Harrelson's acting style. Brett Ratner should be arrested for impersonating a film maker. Oh, but let's not forget the incredibly horrid, forgettable, script.
