Originally billed as merely $, Dollars stars top box office draws Warren Beatty and Goldie Hawn. Beatty plays a security whiz, employed in Hamburg, Germany. He devises a clever method of robbing the secret bank vaults of notorious criminals, reasoning that the crooks will never turn to the cops. The notion that the crooks may have a few words to say to him does not dissuade Beatty as he and gold-hearted hooker Hawn work out their carefully calculated, meticulously timed robbery. ~ Hal Erickson,

The comedy sits uneasily with the admittedly efficient action scenes, although at least here we have none of the usual Brooks sermonising to dilute the brew.
Better known for his serious dramas, Richard Brooks might not have bene the right choice for this minor and fluffy heist flick, but it stars Warren Beatty and Goldie Hawn, who are at their most physically appealing.
Beatty and Hawn carry this fun little heist/comedy picture for the first hour, but then the whole affair gets a little tiring.
Cutting more rapidly than usual, [Brooks] kept the action moving fairly entertainingly for most of the movie, with includes a long and spectacular car chase.
