After five years in prison for grand theft auto, Vince returns to Toronto. Kranski, his old boss, insists that he repay a large debt (money lost in his arrest) by boosting cars. His cover is a mechanic's job at Kranski's garage. In his spare time, Vince welds pieces of scrap metal into sculptures; a trendy gallery owner spots one and sells it for thousands and commissions more. Art might be Vince's ticket out if he can get Kranski off his back. Meanwhile, Vince's prolix parole officer is circling, and Kristen, the gallery owner's assistant, beguiles Vince. Written by
Two pairs of socks, that's the key.
Key to what?
The key to staying fresh and feeling good, ya know. What you do is you keep an extra pair of socks in your pocket, one in your lunch pale, around 2-3 o'clock in the afternoon you slap those bad boys on, bam, you fell like a million bucks.
I'll have to remember that.

Father & son team up for an above average comedy caper...
We've all seen the story before...ex-con gets out of prison, tries to go straight, old friends get him back into the game, one last big score, the end, live happily ever after. That's about the gist of it, I'm afraid, but you may want to stick around... it's worth it.
Vince (Rossif Sutherland) has just gotten out of prison and his probation officer, Pogue (Peters), urges him to go straight and for the most part, Vince wants to... he really does. Enter Mr. Kranski (Donald Sutherland), the man Vince did 5 years in the pokey for, he wants the money Vince lost him on the deal. What better way to recoup those losses than more crime? So Vince reluctantly agrees to work for Mr. Kranski as long as he'll let him use the shop as a front for his P.O. Sounds like a good plan to me.
While working for Mr. K, Vince dabbles in some welding work in the back room -- taking old car parts, slapping them together and making "art", so to speak. One day, a body shop customer named Belinda (Romijn) stumbles upon Vince's "art" and lo and behold -- she's an art dealer. She aims to make Vince famous, so she invites him to her gallery, where he meets her assistant, Kristen (Roemer), who is "strictly business".
From there, some story lines get entangled with one another and chaos ensues. Sure, it's a bit predictable, but what movie isn't these days? As long as the story moves along at a nice pace and there's an inkling of witty dialog, then I'll be inclined to watch it. The movie is billed as a comedy, it's not a laugh riot comedy but it did have some pretty cute bits and funny lines sprinkled throughout. Not a single bad performance among the cast at all, it was nice to see Donald Sutherland (looking very healthy and spry at 75-years-old) working with his son, Rossif, who really hasn't done much work but still does a nice job nonetheless.
