**1/2. Blu-Ray. I remember having seen this film, when it was theatrically released, almost alone in the movie theater. It was one of the biggest bombs of that year. In spite of the presence of James Caan, Elliott Gould, Michael Caine and Diane Keaton, the audience didn't come. Strange because it was 'The Sting' without Redford and Newman. It's not a masterpiece but there's a lot to save here. A curiosity.
