Goofs

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.

He's from Newark Too!!
18 January 2001 | by (Bellingham, WA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Like other reviewers here, I agree it's hard to explain exactly why. But maybe that's the definition of a good film, one that is consistently coherent, that flows together so well one is left with an overall impression rather than remembered bits and pieces.

Part of the attractiveness of Disorganized Crime is the setting. To watch it is like taking in gulps of fresh air when you laugh. Which is often.

This is a balanced story. No one is good or bad, just assorted characters connected by cross purpose and disjointed competence. Each man does his job very well, and the hilarious thing is that it makes no difference at all. Some things are just not meant to be. No matter how hard the gang or deputies work together or alone, somebody ends up in a pit with a horse skeleton or losing his pants to save his flashlight.

Only excellent writing can save broad comedy from slapstick, and the writers certainly have succeeded here. This movie is a pleasure and an antidote for depression. I mean, if these guys can laugh...
