The film opens with four tuxedo clad men showing up at a penitentiary to meet a friend who has just been released after three years in prison and is going straight from the jail to marry his girlfriend. En route to the wedding, one of the men asks to stop by a bank to pick up some cash. As it turns out, he is a wanted bank robber who uses Shakespeare passages during his robberies and thus has become known as "Hamlet". Soon all five men are caught up in the bank and involved in the robbery as they end up in a hostage situation. The hostage negotiator shows up who turns out to be Hamlet's father. As the men are all known to those being robbed, this quirky comedy takes a left turn as their hostages all work to support the men.Written by

If you like quirky comedic tragic films this is it
Basically it's there in the subject. When I first rented this movie I thought "Oh sounds like it'll be a cute movie." Yes, I said "cute." So I took it home, put it in and let it play. What I got was a completely different experience than I was expecting, but very much welcome in the end. It's a movie about friendship, love, and ultimately sacrifice. While some of the cast may not be well known to the public, what I have seen most of them in as well as this movie, has been quite impressive. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has enjoyed such films as "Thursday," "Pulp Fiction," or even Michael Mann's "Heat." One of the best ensamble casts since the recent "Ocean's Eleven," check it out. I give it FOUR out of FIVE STARS.
