      Movie Info

      Bookstore owner and burglar Bernie (Whoopi Goldberg) is being blackmailed by corrupt cop Ray (G.W. Bailey), forcing her into her most ambitious job yet: a jewelry store heist she's woefully under prepared for. Things head south quickly when a murder occurs and Bernie is framed for the death. Now Bernie and her manic sidekick, Carl (Bob Goldthwait), have to clear Bernie's name so she can get back to her normal routine of selling books and stealing.

        I love Bobcat in this movie, he's funny as usual, but the rest of the cast is just okay. I liked this movie, but it could have been better, it's pretty cheesy at times.

        Funny... Bobcat is hilarious in this.

        A film that taught me how painful watching until the credits roll can be.
