Movie Info

In this comedy (which claims a strong pedigree -- it was written by John Sayles and directed by Bill Forsyth), Burt Reynolds plays Ernie, an aging career burglar who knows just about everything there is to know about breaking and entering. One night, Ernie has stealthily slipped into a home only to discover someone else is already there -- Mike (Casey Siemaszko), a guy in his early 20's who likes to sneak into other people's houses so he can raid their refrigerators and watch their televisions.

Delightfully charming low-key funny mismatched buddy crime caper pic.

Not much happens, but it is entertaining

July 20, 2006

A low-key and intriguing teaming of John Sayles and Billy Forsyth that features a terrific performance by Reynolds.

Breaking In is a charming, warm and completely entertaining movie - the kind you'll enjoy best after sitting through something particularly mindless and loud.

Audience Reviews for Breaking In

Unusual buddy film as old hand burglar/safecracker Reynolds (thankfully lowkey for a change -
avoiding his usual big Cheesy Ham persona) takes in a
young guy and teaches him the
ropes of nighttime illegality. Its better than you might
think and also good on the difficult reality of actually breaking into a place designed to keep people out, quite unlike the plethora of Hollywood films that depict breaking and entering to be as easy as pulling a plastic card out of yer back pocket.
