Enjoyable heist drama
9 June 2003 | by poc-1See all my reviews

Caroline Quentin plays a cleaning lady who works in the Bank of England and has a plan to steal money from the incinerator where old notes are decommissioned. As is customary in heist dramas, things go well at first and then start to go awry. Despite the cliches of the genre, the direction and humour of this movie is refreshing and holds viewer attention well. Throughout the movie there is a subtle battle of the sexes going on. The cleaners have to outwit the male security guards while at the same time trying to keep their husbands under control. In general, the male characters don't come off too well from the encounter. It is all good natured though, rather like the comedy series Men Behaving Badly, in which Quentin also stars.
