Jason C. (JJC) from NEWARK, NJ
Reviewed on 4/17/2008...
Frank Salazar (Corbin Bernsen) is a thief from Newark, NJ now hiding out in a dusty, open Montana town. He has his sights set on a bank robbery, which will take four of the best men he's ever worked with in his impressive career, to successfully pull it off. Right after Frank sends letters to his best four guys to meet him in Montana with details unknown, he gets arrested by bumbling Newark Detectives George Denver (Ed O'Neill) and Bill Lonigan (Daniel Roebuck) who received a hot lead to his whereabouts and decide to take him back to Newark. But Salazar outsmarts the two clueless cops, gets away and tries to trek back to his hideout, but gets lost in the rural deserts of Montana.

Meanwhile, Frank's four-man posse, which consists of aging explosives expert Max Green (Fred Gwynne); professional safe-cracker and alcoholic Nick Bartkowski (William Russ); fellow heist-man and gunman Carlos Barrios (Rubén Blades); and getaway driver Ray Forgy (Lou Diamond Phillips)...whom all don't know each other, meet up at the train station, where Ray drives them all to Frank's hideout...but there's no Frank! So, these four strangers must work together to find out where Frank is and why they were called there in the first place. Of course, these guys aren't going to get along at first, which causes more problems and results in one getting arrested. But when they finally realize that Frank had a big time robbery in mind, they decide to take on the job anyway without Frank. Meanwhile, the two detectives on still on Salazar's tail, even though they're way off track and actually more so, following the hijinks caused by Frank's four buddies, thinking it's Frank and getting closer.

The movie is a lot of fun and well-written I might add. Written and directed by Jim Kouf, who wrote "Stakeout," an even better but also a tad more serious crime-comedy, once again provides a well-thought out script. "Crime" does get a little more on the silly side but Kouf's scenario of a group of urban disorganized criminals running around in Montana, does work especially with a great cast of character actors all turning in admirable performances. It provides a bunch of laughs, some real funny, some kind of lame but all in all and at the end, you feel like you want to see another film with these guys.

It may be disorganized but its very funny!

"DISORGANIZED CRIME is a movie equivalent to a tv crime comedy. It's all ensemble acting with no one person stealing all of the scenes. All of the actors are very good as different criminal talents put together to execute a perfect crime in a small town. There is just one small problem; the mastermind for all of the other criminals is arrested and cannot put all of the various pieces togrther. The rest of the movie is about the mastermind escaping two funny but incompetent lawman while the leaderless henchmen try to do the job by themselves. Both parts of the movie work well and the ending is funny, ironic, and surprising."
One of my favorite comedies... Ever!

"There is no way you cannot enjoy this movie, the actors are all absolutely hillarious. (Ruban Blades is by far the best) What, at first, looks like just another run-of-the-mill crime caper, turns into a complicated action-comedy that doesn't have one unlikeable character. (Ed o'neil is also one of the best Characters)"

"It cost only 10$. But it's worth 3 times that. I saw this ages ago (just after it came out) and always loved it, so I had to have it for my collection. I dig movies about bumbling thieves too, but these guys aren't the bumbling kind. And besides, the Bank Vault with all that money may motivate the characters in the film, but ultimately it's not about that. Rubén Blades is just so superb in this. His behaviour always provokes fits of laughter. All the actors play off each other so well, whether it's the late Fred Gwynne, Young Guns' Lou Diamond Phillips, or Ed O'Neill from TV's Married With Children. I really can't recommend this more. It doesn't play like the usual caper, because the humour isn't necessarily in great jokes or great physical stunts or the like. The laughs come from the dynamics between the characters - their interaction and communication with one another; it's in how they say things, their facial expressions. Subtleties. And all this from actors who don't earn 20 million per picture. Plus, you know, it cost only 10$!"
