While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
Twenty-something Torontonians and friends Kevin, Sam and Rob play a game they call Foolproof: they plan foolproof heists, but without the intention of actually carrying them out. They have a few rules in the game, including the three having the necessary technical and physical abilities to carry out the tasks required for the heist, the plan cannot include loaded guns, and there is no violence meaning that no one gets hurt. They try to be as meticulous if not more so than the best high stakes thieves. The fun is in knowing they could do it if they truly wanted. Their collective lives change when someone breaks into Sam's apartment and steals their latest plan for a jewelry warehouse heist. After the warehouse is hit, the culprit identifies himself to them as Leo 'The Touch' Gillette, a known but never convicted high stakes thief who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. He tells them that the break-in at Sam's apartment was not by accident, and that part of his grand plan is to ... Written by

The counterbalance of the elevator passes the elevator at several different floors. The first time when they hang under it, the balance passes at something like the 4th floor. When Sam is going to track the guard, she is at the 22nd floor and the same happens as the elevator goes by. Both cases are not according to the indicators outside the elevator near the entrance; the 22nd floor is almost at the top of that elevator's reach. This means the counterbalance should pass the elevator at something like floor 15, not 5 and certainly not 22. See more »

"Foolproof" is a wonderful surprise. A smart, well-acted movie set in Toronto with no one pretending it's New York, or L.A or...Pittsburgh! Fast-paced and quick-thinking it's what multi-million dollar productions (i.e.:The Bourne Supremacy) aim for but so frequently miss. Above all there is that "thing" that no one can plan: chemistry. The actors have something going on the screen and , whether it's feigned or not, it comes across full throttle. Ryan Reynolds, Kristin Booth and Joris Jarsky just "click";they are charming and engaging. The great David Suchet makes for a menacing villain. The whole thing had some brains behind it and I had a great time watching.
