Big DisappointmentBy bongox from london , 26 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I can't believe that respected actors such as Michael Caine and Miranda Richardson have lent their talents to this film. The plot line was ridiculous, the characters unbelievable and it took all my will not to turn it off after the first 15 minutes. Dull & frustrating. So much so that I have been compelled to write my first film review!

Not GreatBy Michelle Aspinall from Bradford , 02 Aug 2005Hmmm, not a lot to say about this, funny on account of Dylan Moran, some great one liners but thats about it. Not sure why Michael Caine is in it at all and it would be better without the irritating child.
Don't BotherBy a customer from Bolton , 05 Jun 2005Boring, Dull, Too long. I am an actor so thought I would like this, but it is about conning not acting and is not funny at all.
Under- rated little jemBy tenentenemy from Shropshire , 17 May 2005When this came out in 2003, it got an unjustly slaying from the critics.
It's not the greatest comedy film ever made, yet it isn't simple made for
TV pap. The film centres on two down-on-their-luck actors (Caine and Moran)
who hatch a brilliant plan to steal a big wad of cash. A little absurd in
places, it's Moran puts the sparkle in the film with his near perfect
accents and innocent Irish-boy looks.
Not exactly hilarious but not so bad neitherBy a customer from Shrewsbury , 30 Apr 2005Didn't exactly find the movie funny but it was ok to pass the time. Have seen far worse movies.
A HootBy DottyG from Middlesbrough , 14 Apr 2005If Caine, Moran, Gambon et al had as much fun making this as I had watching it, I want to retrain as an actor.
Full of hilarious luvvie jokes but with enough farce and and slapstick to satisfy younger viewers and starring the most improbable wig of cinema history.
This is in fact a crime caper, with the emphasis on caper. Dylan Moran is revealed as an accomplished actor while Caine and Gambon ham it up to great effect.
The love interest is gorgeous and the kid steals all her scenes, but the real star is Dublin.
The sound track has really got under my skin and the opening sequence has left me panting to see Moran's Richard. Cast him someone.
