The most polite Crooks one can ever meet
12 August 2001 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

This film has its moments, but it is not laugh out loud, hysterically funny. Cesar Romero plays Telly's inept crime boss friend, who finances a robbery in England. The characters behave like they are in a 1960's television sitcom, with no laugh track. See this film only if you are a fan of Telly Savalas, or enjoy the Nostalgia of 1960's comedy capers.
