24 December 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Even though it's a bit dated, this tale of crooks with hearts of gold is still fun to sit through. The highlight of the film is probably Dame Edith Evans as Lady Sophie, the madcap, gambling, barnstorming old aristocrat. British viewers might not enjoy the implication that what Europe really needs is American know-how to make things profitable. ;)
