Audience Reviews for We're No Angels


Charming with great interplay between the three male leads, all the parts are cast to perfection really. The most unusual Christmas movie you'll ever see.

Charming set of convicts. They had goofy prison uniforms however. Better than the awful Sean Penn & Robert DeNiro remake.

Super Reviewer

Oddly charming prison escape film bizarrely played for laughs. Worth seeing for one of Bogart's rare comic roles, and there was even a misguided remake starring Robert DeNiro and Sean Penn.
