Reviewed on 3/28/2016...
Burt Reynolds stars as an aging safe cracker/thief who trains a young criminal (Casey Siemaszko) the best way to break open a safe or get into a well fortified business and along the way both earn respect for each other and have fun along the way... so do we the audience!

Instead of the Usual Junk, Burt Makes a Wonderful Film!
Robert M. Khoury | Charlotte, NC | 01/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a Burt Reynolds fan since the earliest days of his movie career. Once the top actor in the world, with Clint Eastwood, Burt, unfortunately, made it big in films like Gator, Cannonball Run, Stroker Ace, and the Dixie Dancekings. It was one of those rare moments in Hollywood when a pretty actor and a new film genre fuse completely. And when the genre loses its appeal, so does the actor. In music, look what happened to the Bee Gees when disco self-distructed. But Reynolds is a very competent actor. Watch The Longest Yard, Sharkey's Machine, and Boogie Nights. This film belongs among them: Burt has never been better. He's believable, complex, and engaging. He plays mentor to a would-be cat burglar with more ambition than brains, and you will find yourself thoroughly engrossed in his next lesson. He can underplay a role like nobody else. Yet he manages to bring out the character's deepest thoughts and feelings doing little things that few other actors would bring to a role, even if they had the wisdom and life experience to draw from. Today's pretty boys are 80% marketing, and know about as much about real-life as my house cat knows about the jungle."

Speaking as a self-retired financial relocationist...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I discovered this movie during the years I spent working as a professional (I'd like to think so, anyway) "financial relocationist", and loved it. (It's where my Amazon nickname came from!) Yes, it's not a terribly good movie, and some of the B&E techniques they use are pure Hollywood, but it's entertaining, especially for any members of the audience who also happen to be middle-class, self-proclaimed gentleman thieves. I was just learning my trade when I saw it, and actually used some of the ideas in real life later on! :) The plot's a little shallow, as the other reviewer said, and the jokes never really get past light chuckles, but I'd recommend it to anyone."
