So when Connie has a heart attack, each team decides it's time to find out what's inside her legendary safe. Unfortunately they all plan their big score for the same night. Written by Anonymous

Hilarious!
11 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to view Capers during the Fort Lauderdale (Florida) Film Festival. Capers is a must-see movie, especially for current or former New Yorkers. This movie is funny for a wide range of audiences, though. The characters are over-the-top versions of their real-life counterparts, especially the owner of the pawn shop. The movie is not "typical" by any standards. It is an extraordinary and unusual creation. The music is ultra-appropriate and original. As soon as this movie is released widely, please rush to see it! I rarely laugh at any movie or TV show, but I thought Capers was hysterical, so my recommendation is authentic.
