    Slick flick about lovable characters who help themselves to wealth that others acquired honestly. OK, so the underlying premise totally sucks. Since when did that make pretension any less enjoyable. Thornton is great, Willis is, well, Willis. Blanchette cuts quite the character as a recruited housewive - man, that lady can play anything.

    This movie is acted to perfection. Cate Blanchett gave the best performance of 2001 from a male or female. The movie was just a bit too long however. There were some monstrous laughs to be had though.

    Levinson's quirky caper is rich with laughs.
  2. A comedy that might have made Butch and Sundance jump off a cliff.

    What started as cute becomes cloying and bloated. Charm should never feel like it weighs a ton.
