Classic heist film!
18 August 2000 | by (Littleton, CO) – See all my reviews

If you're into heist films (Alpha Caper, the It Takes a Thief TV series, the Burglars) this is pretty classic. I remember seeing it YEARS ago on TV. The one scene I still remember is when Greggors the monkey refuses to come back after grabbing the vase (by use of a tightrope over the vace's platform) and it's trainer, John Fiedler (Mr. Peterson from the Bob Newhart Show) tries to lure it back by hanging half of his wallet out of his back pocket and waving his butt around shouting "look Greggors! Sucker Greggors! Sucker!" Classic scene!
