Can two thieves steal the inheritance?
17 October 2002 | by (detroit) – See all my reviews

You've seen the movies where one thief tries to get an inheritance by impersonating someone right? Well how about where two thieves try?!

This is more of a serious movie, still comedic tho. Pretty good fight scenes towards the end.
