So when Adam approaches Jessie with ascheme for burglary, he's shocked, but not necessarily uninterested.
Depressing. Not a comedy; it should be in the drama section. The acting is fabulous, and the story is powerful and sad. (Language is not appropriate for kids.)Published 1 month ago by Bill Giovannetti
Very good story with excellent performances by Hoffman and Connery. The caper they pull off is secondary, the relationships between all the parties is very well done.Published 3 months ago by P. Christie
One of my favorites. Watch it about once a year. This is a really entertaining movie.Published 5 months ago by Teri McCarthy
