Failed parole officer Simon Garden (Coogan) is framed for a murder committed by one of Manchester's leading police officers. The only evidence proving his innocence is a CCTV video tape locked inside a bank vault. With the help of four inept ex-criminals and token love interest Emma (Lena Headey), Garden must break into the bank and steal the CCTV footage in order to clear his name.Written by
As a gag, Steve Coogan featured three review quotes on the back of the UK version of the DVD, the first review reads: "Unarguably the greatest film ever made" which was quoted by Alan Partridge, a fictional character created by Coogan. Another review says "A Bag of Sh*te" quoted by Paul Calf, (another fictional creation of Coogan's), while the third review is a standard quote from a Hot Dog magazine review which reads: "Coogan is the new Peter Sellers".

It is never explained how the conspirators have such detailed knowledge about the lay out of the bank. See more »
There are some laughs and some entertaining dialogue in a low budget film, which survives harsh criticism, because Steve Coogan carries the rest of the cast along with his Cluesoesque ability to get it right without really knowing what he is doing. This is really for Partridge fans.
