Basically rubbish with star power and a very funny Bobcat Goldthwait.

One of Whoopi's laziest vehicles ... and she's done her share.

Audience Reviews for Burglar

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.

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