The perfect crime. Frankie is about 10, angelic looking and always thinking. At school, he runs blackjack games for candy. He and his close friend Noodle get a lot of detention. The two of them have planned to steal all the candy from the neighborhood Seven-Eleven, run by the cranky Stinger. He recruits several young friends. To pull it off, they must get someone in the locked office, distract Stinger several times, get him out of the store briefly, load all the candy quickly, get it away from the neighborhood, and leave no evidence. Impossible. Can Frankie, Noodle, and their gang pull it off? Written by
I am so lucky to have a copy of this film due to the kindness of a fellow IMDb member! The short film, a parody of "Ocean's Eleven", is about a group of school students who decide to pull a heist over at their local shop, to steal lollies! We see them as they plan, organise and execute their crime.
This was a very clever and enjoyable film. It seemed very well-made, and the children were mostly good actors particularly the awesome Jordan Garrett. The plan itself was very entertaining and actually quite plausible.
There were a lot of fun references to "Ocean's Eleven", but one of the strengths of the film was that it also works as a short film by itself and you don't need to be familiar with "Ocean's Eleven". (The child I watched it with did not get any of the parody elements, but still liked it a lot.) Overall a very nice piece of work and I hope to see more from those involved.
