When Max is in the backseat of the car telling Carlos and Ray about the $5000.00 bail, he says it was for "grand theft on the car... Frank must have stolen it", but earlier, when Carlos returns from chasing Nick and tells Max and Ray he found the car, Ray says "He totaled my car?"...so it was Ray's car, not one that Frank stole.

Only $600 dollars, not enough.
We need another $900.
Why don't we just take out a loan?
We can hit one more.
Are you out of your mind? We're going to get nailed.
This isn't Miami, you know. Every cop they have'll be swarming over that market. If we hit another right now they won't be ready.
They won't be ready? I'm not ready! I haven't done this since I was 17!

Corbin Bernsen's sent letters to four criminal associates he's worked with in the past and it's a real intergenerational mix with Fred Gwynne, Lou Diamond Phillips, William Russ, and Ruben Blades. They're to meet him in this obscure Montana town and he doesn't explain why because he's then picked up by out of state police from New Jersey on a warrant.
Of the criminal group that's been gathered together, they all know Bernsen, but don't know each other. A lot of comedy involved is them feeling each other out. As the oldest Gwynne though denying it kind of takes charge with the others grumbling, but going along. Especially when they figure out what Bernsen had in mind.
As for Bernsen, he's got the good fortune to be picked up by a pair of bumblers in Ed O'Neill and Daniel Roebuck. He gets the drop on O'Neill and escapes.
After that it's the four criminals trying to finish what Bernsen started and Bernsen getting away the police. In the intricately plotted screenplay, it's fascinating how both story lines keep intertwining with each other. Hoyt Axton as the local sheriff watches in amazement at what unfolds in his town.
Disorganized Crime is a fabulously funny caper film by a bunch of players who seem mostly to have had a background in television or would soon. I can't say that anyone stood out in the cast they also seem to click so well together.
Ironically none of these people are comedians per se, but they all exhibit a light comic touch that good directing brought out.
Disorganized Crime is one very funny caper movie, the kind of film that well known pessimist Mr. Murphy would have written.
