Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] A hotel suite that, in this instance, serves as a den of crime, the aftermath of a rather minor event to be noted on a police blotter, an insurance claim, perhaps a three-inch box on page twelve of the evening paper.

Take My Picture!
13 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three small time criminals find an old camera among the booty that they have taken from a curio shop. The camera has the ability to show a picture of something happening five minutes in the future. One crook takes a picture of his wife and the photo shows her wearing a mink coat. A few minutes later, they find a mink coat in a box. They try to figure out how to work this to their benefits, but are too stupid to figure anything out. Then it dons on them that they can see the results of horse races before they are run. Down to the track they go and have the world by the butt. It's what they do afterward that this story is all about. It's about stupidity, carelessness, haphazard actions. The whole thing is pretty predictable, but has a few choice moments.
