Storyline

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.

Quotes

[first lines]
Pogue: Two pairs of socks, that's the key.
Vince: Key to what?
Pogue: 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.
Vince: I'll have to remember that.

My 398th Revierw: Romantic crime comedy....just about....
5 April 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Vince is just out of jail and his crime boss (Real-life father Donald Sutherland) wants him back jacking cars. Vince wants to go straight. He gets discovered as a scrap-artist and the two woman at the gallery want a piece of him for different reasons and so the question is. will crime triumph or will VInce get to be the artist he can be?

All in, this is nicely cast, nicely shot and put together, but the overall effect is such that is pretty lightweight - the romantic interests and the crime interests are, in particular, sketchy, and what we end up with is an easily watchable film with little impact.

If you like the genre you'll like this - but really it's just OK and mainly instantly forgettable.
