Really enjoyed this comedy of errors and idiots. William H. Macy is brilliant, as usual. Worth watching.

Movie Reviews

Could have been much better, but it has a unique "feel"
Kristopher Haines | Portland, OR United States | 03/15/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes truth is indeed stranger than fiction, especially the epilogue. Perhaps it is because it is based on such strange facts that it resists being fictionalized. "Stealing Sinatra" registers as flat. What a waste. I think that its biggest problem is it neglects to include some of the more interesting facts of the story. Why did Barry Keenan do it? The movie shows him popping pills but it does not mention (if memory serves) that he was once a great mind and the youngest person to trade on the stock exchange. It does mention his maraculous rebound in the end, but does not mention that kidnapper and kidnapee are often forced to exchange awkward glances at ritzy parties. All and all it is an adequate film, due mostly to the way it evokes its time period, and of course the remarkable skill of William H. Macy.

Boring as boring can be

"Ugh. Don't waste your time. You may think this is a "movie", but it's just something Showtime threw together. None of the acting is very good, and it has very little, if any, redeeming qualities.
I know, I know, it has "Sinatra" in the title, how bad can it be? Well, it's bad, trust me.
The only thing I liked about it, assuming they stuck to facts, is that you learn what happened to Frank Jr's captors."
Unwatchable

"Stealing Sinatra is based on a true story. I heard about it on the Chicago based This American Life. Fascinating!
Ira Glass said that Showtime had gotten the rights to the story and made it into a film. Great! I ordered it at once. David Arquette is so terrible, I had to turn it off. Not to mention the direction of this piece of crap is awful. I recommend listening to the podcast of This American Life instead. Arquette should stick to playing retarded sheriffs in horror spoofs."
