Storyline

Two master thieves go at odds with one another as one sets the other up for a crime. The first, a suave pro who does his job and then hides in his own privacy, listening to old jazz records and caring for his ailing dog, Wally. The other is a local gangster with a taste for the finer life, who decides to eliminate the competition. This ignites a war between the two men and their aides. An angry mob boss and a female police officer try to sort the mess before things get too out of hand. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Trivia

The turntable in Mackin's apartment is a Technics SL-1200MKII. The Technics logo on the shell is clearly covered with a black marker though, probably due to the lack of endorsement kickback. See more »

Sometimes, god is in the details...
30 March 2003 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

"Thick as Thieves" is a terrific, fast-paced film with exceptional (and very funny) dialogue. As some of the other reviewers have stated, Michael Jai White is exceptional, but the same can be said about Baldwin and the rest of the cast. How many perfectly putrid or at best mediocre films were released and heavily promoted in 1999 while this little gem was swept under the rug? Watch and listen carefully. You'll be glad that you did.
