Goofs

When George leans on the painted Vista Cruiser outside the courthouse/police station, the fresh white paint rubs off on his suit sleeve, revealing the original blue paint underneath. Two minutes later when Ray picks up Carlos, Carlos uses his bare hand to close the car door through the window when he gets in, but no paint rubs off the car or on to Carlos' hand. See more »

Cable worthy star studded 80's comedy
2 November 2003 | by (Northridge, California) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on cable as I'm sure most of you did. This movie isn't terribly funny but it is entertaining. The greatest advantage that this movie has is it's large and talented cast. Let's go over that cast for a minute.

Fred Gwynne, Corbin Bernsen, Ruben Blades, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Ed O' Neill all put in great performances and don't take their characters too seriously. Although none of these actors is particularly hot at the moment, all are accomplished actors. It's also too bad that Fred Gwynne has passed away. This kind of light hearted heist film can die a quick death if it takes itself too seriously. Fortunately the movie keeps it real and doesn't try to be too serious.

Bottom Line: I have this on VHS because I kept seeing it on TV and I finally broke down and bought it. Now if you like movies that you can watch, enjoy and then forget about, then this is the movie for you.
