Who goes? Jeffrey's fucked.
One of us.
I'll go. I know the explosives.
Guess again. You're too heavy. Jeffrey only had that cord set for 350 pounds.
Well, you go, then.
Someone's got to track the alarms. I stay with my laptop, pal.
I can do it.
No offense, but when this makes the books as the most fucked-up bank job in history for all the mistakes that I did make, I don't want to be credited with sending the Chow-Wang food guy in to blow the safe.

This was a great movie, not a block buster, sure, but a great movie none the less. I just saw it on Showtime and wondered why I didn't see it in the theaters.
Good jobs all around. The directing was excellent and Sean could have carried the movie all by himself, but didn't have to. Sure some of the scenes were predictable and have been done elsewhere, but find me a movie where that isn't true. You have to judge this movie for what it set out to be: a farcical heist film. I predict that those that loved Hudson Hawk will like this movie as well.
