Entertaining without being worth seeking out
6 December 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

If it's on the box and you're planning a quiet night in then this is probably a reasonable option.

The whole thing comes across as a kind of a low-key British "Oceans Eleven", but without the big names (although "Minder's" George Cole and "Only Fools and Horses" David Jason appear to relish the trip down memory lane and the chance to return to the lighter side of the criminal world.)

The plot has a few holes and is a bit on the daft side, but David Jason's performance is - as ever - that of an engaging lovable rogue. Like I said, at time it did feel a bit too much like Oceans 11 and not enough like a story in its own right, but if you put that to one side and don't hold the highest hopes for it then you should be entertained.
