Goofs

When Maren (Candace Bergen) and Howard (Charles Grodin) take the diamonds to Massey's (Trevor Howard) house after the theft, they zoom around the parking area outside the house while a couple of Massey's goons hang on the sides of the truck. The parking area is gravel, yet the truck tires squeal as if they were on a paved surface. See more »

Very intelligent and charming heist film which holds up extremely well
9 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a movie buff in my mid 50's, and though I own many hundreds of movies, this is among my top 10 most enjoyable films to watch and I hate that it is not available on DVD, not to mention BluRay. I own the LaserDisc version in widescreen with the Grodin narration. I re-watch this movie every few years, and enjoy it just as much every time. Grodin and Bergen are extremely charming, and the British supporting cast is world class. Some incorrectly describe this as a spoof, which gives the entirely wrong impression, though it is certainly witty and self-deprecating. It certainly isn't entirely realistic, but the tone, mood and wit of the film are extremely engaging.
