About as much zip as a velcro jacket. Considering it credentials – Elmore Leonard novel, a cast including Tim Robbins, Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes & Mos Def – this should have been more zing, less drag. It seemed to go on for ever.
The choice seems to have been to focus on the drama rather than the comedy in the material – mistake. The plot is predictable, so any attempt at eking out the serious element was on something of a hiding for nothing. A caper is what it cried out to be and 20 minutes shorter.
