I liked Sandra Bullock in this role!

I am a huge fan of her work and I thought she wouldn't do a bad movie, I was wrong of course.

It also loses a little steam towards the end.

I don't know why the other reviewers were so hard on this movie. Perhaps they expected more from a "Sandra Bullock" flick. I enjoyed it. It's a cute and funny movie about a dense thief and his smart girlfriend trying to evade the law.
Okay, it's not as fast-paced as MIDNIGHT RUN and Yaphet Kotto is not as funny as the FBI man trying to catch them. It also loses a little steam towards the end. But the tete-a-tete and chemistry between Denis Leary and Sandra Bullock works. Actually, by focusing on Bullock one might miss what a great job Leary has done in playing the beleagured boyfriend.
The digital transfer of the DVD is excellent judging from the stunning New England scenery. It is available for a bargain price and is worth every penny.

Althoush critics and pretty much everyone else dismissed this movie as awful, I think it is great. It is Denis Laery at his best both in acting and writing. The dialouge between him and a young Sandra Bullock is excellent. You get to see his Boston/Irish side like in other in Monument Ave but in a better plot with better actors. (Although his art theif sidekicks do have some great one-liners) Sandra Bullock is also an excellent sidekick to Leary. She made this movie before she was a star in movies such a Speed, but plays a her "wanting to get out of the gutter" character great. This movie will not be loved by everyone, but serious Leary fan or Bullock aficionado will appreciate its merit. Finally, any Homicide fans will enjoy seeing "G" Yaphet Kotto in a less dramatic law enforcement role.

Sandra Bullock and Denis Leary actually save this film from sinking totally.The plots and subplots become so convoluted and not very funny, but there is an undeniable lovableness about Roz and her boyfriend thief Frank that keep TWO IF BY SEA floating in rather still waters.Both actors capture perfectly the innocence and naivete of two lovers of seven years who are both struggling to find where they as a couple fit in life.Frank has been pulling cheap theft for years and Roz is always there beside them.They escape everything.Nothing sticks to them.Roz wants commitment of more serious nature than Frank seems to recognise.This is the story that does so well in this film.Bullock and Leary bring such cuteness to their characters.This is one time where a film can be enjoyed on the strength of lead performances, and not so much for a twisted screenplay and direction.The characters contain all the life in this barely above water flick, not the story.

The only thing that keeps this film from totally tanking is the undeniable charm of Sandra Bullock. She does, however, deserve better than this. Dennis Leary should stick to acting, because, having written this piece of dreck, should he decide to write full time, he will be spending a lot of time in the unemployment line.
The premise is simple. A low life, dumb and inept petty thief, played with some saving grace by Dennis Leary, steals a famous painting that he is supposed to resell to an anonymous buyer at a remote location. Accompanied by his working class girlfriend, Sandra Bullock, who does all she can with this thankless role, they go to a location near the drop off point, only they get there before the drop off day and need a place to stay. They move temporarily into a mansion, whose owners are away. A rich and curious neighbor comes over, but they manage to convince the neighbor that they are friends of the owner and are there as invited guests.
Meanwhile, the FBI is hot on their trail with a team headed up by Yaphet Kotto, an actor too good to be in this film. To make a long story short, Bullock wants Leary to go straight. He waffles. The neighbor goes for Bullock. She finds herself attracted to him but is torn by loyalty to Leary. She waffles. A local kid comes up with some dirt on the neighbor that he shares with Leary. This gives Leary the ammunition he needs to save the day, when the FBI finally catches up with them. To find out what happens, you will just have to suffer through this movie, as I did. All I will say is that what happens is predictable.

I enjoyed this movie. It is a lighthearted comedy, with a good lesson in honesty for the younger viewers. Beautiful scenery.

One of those movies you don't mind watching more than once.

A small time crook Frank and his girlfriend Roz decide to get away from everything for a few days after Frank has pulled what he hopes to be that one last job. Unbeknownst to Roz at the time, Frank has no intentions of stopping his ongoing shenanigans. As their relationship is addressed, and the typical tensions of any long term relationship arise things become slightly more complicated. Suddenly the two are on the run from the FBI, while the FBI doesn't even know who they are. Things are further complicated when the person who hired Frank is not pleased at Frank's sudden change of plans. Roz meets someone who may be just a friend or.........?

I have liked Dennis Leary for quite a while, ever since I first heard his audio CD "No Cure for Cancer". I have enjoyed him in several movies and of course the TV series "Rescue Me". However when I first heard of this movie, quite some time after it had been released I was very skeptical at first. I love Sandra Bullock as an actress, though I really was not sure how she and Leary could possibly do anything entertaining together. I thought that because of how different they are from one another, that this was going to be one long ride to snooze Ville!

No Cure For Cancer [Explicit]

I was wrong at my assumptions, as well as pleasantly surprised at not only how well the two played off of one another - but also how well their characters worked into the plot.

Yaphet Kotto who plays "FBI Agent O'Malley" is amazing, providing additional comic relief and moving the plot along as well.

I would have loved to see this movie on Bluray; however I could only find the DVD when I wanted to purchase the movie.

This is a great movie, nothing too serious....yet somewhat serious at times...and funny as well!
