Woody Allen United States, 2000

Dalibor's rating of the film Small Time Crooks

Reminiscent of director's earliest work, the film bears a certain slapstick quality. Thematically, it wonders about, and just like in "Sleeper", somewhere between rising and falling action it turns into a romantic comedy, dealing deeply with protagonists opposed to story it started with. Which is all fine, but lacking in amusing dialogues and a more creative plot, this didn't work out as well.
