Audience Reviews for 11 Harrowhouse


Breezy little caper comedy with an expert cast and a jaunty pace. Grodin's voice over is a nice touch. Candice Bergen shows her adaptness at comedy years before Murphy Brown.

A fun and different kind of heist film.
Despite only seeing the TV cut, I enjoyed the heck out of it.
They even find a reason to have a big car chase near the end, with Candice Bergen at the wheel (!). What's not to like.
Aram Avakian brings a sort of quirkiness to it, and it's cool to see the dad from the Beethoven movies in another role.
