Trivia

Berkley Square was used as the backdrop for the meetings. Filming the scenes bought the busy traffic in the area of London's Mayfair to a standstill. See more »

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 »

Robert Morgan's review notes that there are two vastly different versions of this film
12 September 2005 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

One with the Grodin narration, and one without. I suspect many of the negative reviews refer to the highly edited TV-version. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if the commercial VHS tape offered is the edited version, so caution is advised.

As a fan of heist films, I only recently learned of this rare film and had an opportunity to obtain the widescreen laserdisc presentation. And while it's true that this isn't a top-notch comedy or thriller, it's certainly better than you would think given the majority of less-than-flattering reviews here.

There are clever heist tricks - many of which have not been used again since this film. You know how much Hollywood likes to "borrow" clever ideas and use them over and over to the point where they become sad clichés. Well, you have to admire the use of cockroaches and chocolate cake to defeat an ultra-secure vault! How many times have you seen that done before? Or since?

If you're a fan of the heist genre or a Grodin devotee - this is a 'must see'. Otherwise, I'd wait 'til it gets a DVD release.
