Towards the end of the movie, Melanie and Mickey are meeting (with Ordell and Louis) when Mickey stands up following rolling a joint. It is clearly shown in her hand, but when she finally walks past Ordell to go to the bathroom, it is gone. She has clearly not put it down or dropped it, it just disappears. See more »

Life of Crime, waste of time
12 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's an interesting film that's trying to be a dark comedy but it's not as dark as I would have expected, which made the laughs long in-between.

I've seen this type of comedy in which the victim befriends the captives because their life was not as put together as hoped. This one takes a slower dramatic pace.

Their were some pretty top notch actors in the film like Tim Robbins, John Hawkes and even Mos Def. It's interesting that Jennifer Aniston took on such a small picture, but maybe they thought her appearance would put people in seats(which I guess is true).

Thought the story was good but the pace of the movie just puts me to sleep (Maybe I actually missed the really fun parts while snoring). Don't kill your time with this one.
