Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: A spiritless, unimaginative exercise in professionalism for its own sake.

- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Friday, July 13, 2001

Rotten: Manages to waste a prestigious cast on a tediously long-winded caper plot.

- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Friday, July 20, 2001

Fresh: A solid suspense thriller that's fun.

- Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, July 13, 2001

Audience Reviews

4 stars

What Director Frank Oz has put together here are three generations of outstanding Talent. A sophisticated Heist movie, character driven, with an exciting build up to the Criminal Mastermind Operation. Exciting, tense at times and genius work with the use of the character ?Brian?. This film gets added to my favourite film endings list.

It's not the best film ever made but I quite liked it! Norton and Bassett are really good, DeNiro's been better and Brando is vile. Directed by Miss Piggy ;o)
