To the review that said: "Robbed my time". I will have to quote a line form a truly great Whoopi Goldberg movie "Ghost" and say "Ditto". Whoopi did her best to carry the movie, but the writing and direction were pretty bad so it was a big waste of time for me, and the question - "Why did they even make this movie?"

Distracting Fun

(4 out of 5 stars)

"While I agree that this is not Whoopi's best movie, it is blithe comic fun that's good for two hours or so of pleasant distraction. Whoopi's irreverent character, Bernie, is a reformed thief forced to do one last job to pay off a blackmailing cop. Along for the ride is the divine Lesley Ann Warren as a nutty dentist, Anne DeSalvo and John Goodman as two bumbling cops always a step behind, and Bobcat Goldthwait in what is probably his only tolerable performance.Tons of profanity, absurd plot twists, and an easily-descerned plot make for a fun farce that is guaranteed to make you laugh."

"Burglar is your typical D movie. It has more bads than goods. Actually, it has a ton of bads. When I sat down to watch this film, I didn't expect Oscar worthy material. But, I did expect something that would at least halfway amuse me or even keep my interest. I didn't get either of them. Yes, the acting was all right. Whoopie Goldberg is a great comedic actress, but she should really be a little choosier when it comes to picking what movies to be in. Burglar moved at a snails pace, and that is putting it lightly. There were way too many coincidences. There would just happen to be a bag with valuables in it laying around, or there would just by pure coincidence be a motorcycle with the keys in it parked in an alley practically yelling at you to be stolen. Also, the directing was terrible. The director did not explain things well at all. The only reason I stuck around to the end was because to see if my prediction of who the killer was right. And of course, I was right. The plot was paper-thin. I don't like a movie when I know the ending a quarter into the film. Overall, Burglar is a definite waste of time that now has the title of "most predictable movie ever." 1 Star"
