This is it, their one shot at getting stinking rich. Their plan is real simple - although Vince still has a hard time getting it through Malfie's thick skull. With firework night looming, it's obvious that everyone's been buying fireworks like crazy, right? And therefore the factory must have its coffers stuffed full of money , right? Wrong! The first part of the plan goes easily enough - but after cutting the alarm cables and sneaking inside, the lads discover that the riches seems to have been locked into the sturdiest of combination safes this side of Fort Knox.

Very funny and very well made. Go and see this film!

'Indoor Fireworks' is a black comedy about two small-time crooks that plan to bust into a fireworks factory. The film intercuts between the two dump crooks planning the bust and the actual break in. Although the plan seems perfect things start to go wrong the moment they enter the factory. The intercutting works very well and creates some very funny situations. The two actors are phenomenal. Although their characters are a bit over the top you still believe the situations they get into. The whole look and feel of the film is very professional. Great photography and sounddesign. The beautiful score is composed by nobody less than Angelo Badalamenti (Mulholland Dr., The Beach, Blue Velvet).
