Storyline

Three middle-age guards learn that their museum has sold a wing of art to a Danish museum. Each has a favorite in that collection, and none can imagine life without the peace and completion it brings. Though mere acquaintances, they plot a theft of the three pieces between the time they are packed and the time they're loaded onto a plane. First each must obtain a forgery; then, they have to smuggle the forgeries into the museum and find a way to make the switches. The heist is complicated by Roger's intrusive wife - he's promised her a trip to Florida for their anniversary - and George's proclivity for taking his clothes off when standing in front of the warrior statue he loves.

Hollywood Reborn
6 November 2018 | by kcterrell-25046See all my reviews

This film is charming, and a little quirky, and gives everything you would expect from this trio of Walken, Freemand and Macy. I didn't know Hollywood could still make films like this. Lots of parallels to the old Alec Guiness comedies, but it borrows from nothing. An original story, superbly acted and directed, along with a plot that doesn't slow down. A really tight little story. Loved it!
