Two Line Reviews - #319

Movie: Small Time Crooks (2000)

Plot: A crook of a spoilt man, his wife and friends plan on a bank job, rent a nearby shop for doing that and by unusual change of fortunes, their shop flourishes and the couple get rich in a way they never assumed it to be. With the riches come a penchant for class and they lose their way in the quest for class,a dn finally realise their own selves!

  • There is a gem of a message at the end of this hilarious film and that isn't preachy! Another humour filled outing from Woody Allen.
  • This is one of those films which would display Woody's spontaneity in acting - the scenes where he word-fights his wife, the scenes where he show frustration etc. are amazing! The performance of the lady who plays his wife is equally good!
  • The bank job tunneling scenes & the scenes where they get coached are rip-roaring fun.
Hilarious entertainer!
