      Rafi แก้ว M I love this movie. I've read all the bad reviews, even James Caan's disparaging comments about it, and I can't agree. Yes, it's silly - but that's the point! It's slapstick in the old sense. The story is compelling, Diane Keaton's earnestness is a ridiculous contrast, and Michael Caine's wry performance provides an anchor to James Caan and Elliot Gould's playful, over-the-top mugging. The period costumes and sets are delicious, and Caan and Gould are adorable together, with some of the best buddy-movie chemistry I've ever seen. Don't expect 'Citizen Kane,' just enjoy the movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/16/23 Full Review jon c Michael Caine, Elliot Gould, James Caan, and Diane Keaton Two conmen, Walter & Harry in the early 19th century are down on their luck with their entertainment act But they want to go all out with the biggest heist So they put their faith in the biggest safecracker, Adam Worth in the world along with a crusading newspaper woman, Lissa She wants to steer them in a new direction of their lives and out of the harsh prison sentence They're tasked with targeting the biggest most secure back in Lowell, Massachusetts It's kinda funny everyone is on board with these two conmen and their skilled robbing tactics The heist is the only cool portion of the movie where everything else before is kinda stagnating It's a bit heavy handed and the direction and tone are muted in many spots but Keaton gives a fiery performance and it's well photographed Gould and Caan make for a fun, likable duo too Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Simmering comedy, but the heist caper behind it is worthwhile. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A sweet and funny movie. Michael Caine's elegant con man is superb. James Caan singing and dancing isn't far short. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Gorgeously produced period comedy about two vaudevillians getting involved in a heist. Unfortunately, the film isn't all that funny and is waaaaay overlong. Cann and Gould are charming in the leads as Harry and Walter and there is a great supporting cast that includes Michael Caine, Diane Keaton, Charles Durning, Burt Young and many others. Still, it all doesn't add up to much entertainment, other than to marvel at the gorgeous production design and cinematography. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A financial bomb and critically hated when it came out, it doesn come across as a lesser rip off of The Sting. That being said, it features 3 of the top male actors in the 70's (Gould, Caan, and Caine, (all to be reunited a year later amongst the cast of all casts in A Bridge Too Far), as well as one of its biggest female stars (Keaton, who coincidentally appeared previously in The Godfather with Caan). Smaller parts are played by Burt Young, David Proval, and Charles Durning. who all help make it worth watching once. (When Adam Worth is discovered by the police in a tunnel leading to the vault of the Commercial Bank & Trust Co. of Lowell, Mass) Adam Worth: But you see, old fellow, I'm on my way IN, not OUT.... Chatsworth: Adam, where'd you find those two oafs? Adam Worth: Oh, they're not oafs, Jack. They would require practice to become oafs. Harry Dighby: [singing] He's not the real Prince Herbert. I am! Adam Worth: I need a favor, Mr. Durgom. I want these two clods assigned to the nitro detail, as soon as possible. Warden Durgom: You mean permanently, sir? Adam Worth: No, Mr. Durgom. Not permanently. Just until they die! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Nigel Andrews Financial Times A leaden-footed caper. May 12, 2020 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The movie never quite fulfills its promise. It has inspired moments, it's well photographed, Miss Keaton has some wonderfully fiery dialog as the radical editor, but somehow the direction and tone are just a little too muted. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Madeleine Harmsworth Sunday Mirror (UK) This witless caper is a waste of talent and a waste of time. Oct 6, 2023 Full Review Steve Warren The Barb (Atlanta) Lighthearted fun for the summer. James Caan and Elliott Gould don't exactly click like Newman and Redford, but they're acceptable as minor vaudevillians. May 9, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy As Adam Worth, Michael Caine is so wonderful that one wishes Harry and Walter had been scrapped altogether so the filmmakers could have made Adam Worth Goes to New York instead. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Stephen Randall Los Angeles Free Press It's all heavy-handed and pointless, but enjoyable and well-paced. Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
