Professional thief Ernie takes Mike on as an apprentice, but while Mike clearly has "larceny in his heart", it will take him a long time to get as good as Ernie. Written by

In the scene where Mike is buying the torch at the hardware store, you can see a man in the background holding a stainless steel sink. This a reference to director Bill Forsyth's first movie, That Sinking Feeling (1979), about a bunch of kids who decide to break into a stainless steel sink factory. See more »
Burt Reynolds successfully ends a rather slow 1980's with a surprisingly good character part in this 1989 Samuel Goldwyn Pictures release. He portrays a veteran professional thief and safecracker who teaches a young novice how to be like him. Amusing crime caper.
