Not as good as Oceans Eleven, but in the same mold
23 October 2003 | by (Tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

Solid film that has multiple people working together to pull off a jewel heist. David Niven is good, and Burt Reynolds breaks out of his "Smokey" types role and does something more sophisticated. Very much on the Oceans mold, though not as good. I always enjoy catching it on TV, fun film with some unexpected twists and turns.
