Storyline

Emilio, a Colombian con man, arrives in LA with two weeks to complete his plan to rob a former colleague, Claudio Silvestrini, who's made a fortune using infomercials to peddle snake oil to Latin immigrants. Emilio's friend Alejandro, who sells pirated DVDs, has assembled a team of amateurs, who, as Alejandro says, will go unnoticed because they're immigrants. The team must gain entry to Silvestrini's well-guarded mansion, steal two keys to access a vault, and then get the money off the property. A father and his tomboy daughter, a nervous Cuban actor, a techie, and a muscle man make up the team, plus Alejandro has been courting Silvestrini's nanny. Will they be enough?

User Reviews

Great movie! Highly recommend it!
4 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Ladron que roba a ladron is a great movie, and I recommend it to Spanish-speakers and non-Spanish speakers alike. The captions seem to be excellent (I know some Spanish but am far, far, from fluent). The movie is a great deal of fun, and the actors do a wonderful job. Especially enjoyed Miguel Varoni, Saul Lisazo, and Ivonne Montero. Fernando Colunga was great eye candy. Other reviewers have summarized the plot well. It did remind me of Ocean's Eleven, but on a smaller scale and with perhaps even more humor. I understand that some scenes were cut in order to shorten the running time, and I sort of regret that. You will be glad you made the effort to see this film.
