The plot: A skilled pickpocket, paying off his dead father's debt, finds his life turned upside down when his mother reveals that she's moving in with her new boyfriend, a cop with a vendetta closes in on him, and a one-night-stand reveals that she's pregnant with his child.
Loosies is a pretty harmless movie, set in a world where people fall in love with strangers quickly and easily, find redemption effortlessly, and all problems are neatly resolved. As long as you're willing to accept that, I see no reason why you can't enjoy this movie.
If you're looking for a gritty, realistic crime drama, there are plenty of movies like that (Scorsese and Coppola have done quite a few good ones). If you're looking for a somewhat whimsical movie that blends elements of romance, drama, heist, and action, then you could do much worse. It'll never be my favorite movie, but I think the critics were a bit too harsh.
