Surprisingly terrific!!
15 February 2006 | by (Nyiregyhaza, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Sitting down with this, I was afraid to see what was going to appear on the screen. I had no real expectations of the film, and I had no idea what it was about, other than who was in it, and the cover looked like a good heist kind of movie. Wow. It was so much better than I ever would have imagined. Not only was it actually funny, and not just trying to be funny and then totally failed during the trial, but actually, truly funny.

The lines were well-written, the acting was all right on, and I thought everyone was perfect for the characters they'd been given except for one person, and that was Woody Harrelson. He was good, but I just don't consider him all that funny, and so it was kind of a bad choice, in my opinion anyway, to cast him in this role.

Alicia Silverstone was really good, surprisingly enough, and didn't carry any of her 'Clueless' days along with her for this role. John Cleese was just right for the role that he was given, David Krumholtz was annoyingly good (because that's what his character required), and drum roll please...the best person in the whole movie was, Paulo Castanzo. He was hilarious, as he always is, and very smart. He delivers his lines perfectly and without failure, always makes each and every one of his scenes priceless and memorable.

The basic plot of this film is that there are three employees of a bank in a small no-name town, who all want to rob the bank for different reasons. The movie starts off at the end, and works it's way backwards, so that you see what happens, in order for the rest of the film to make sense.

It was cleverly written, and very much over looked. Although we won't be seeing any Oscar nominations for this film, it still was noteworthy and definitely worth the rental fee. There is no sex, no violence, and no language as far as I remember, so the whole film would be appropriate for younger audience viewers.

I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it without question. It's rare that a movie like this comes along, that's quick and smart. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
