Critic Reviews for Flypaper
You know there's something wrong with a comedy when you'd rather see the main characters killed off than live happily ever after.
One thought that occurred to me while pacing myself through Flypaper: With the economy being what it is, will there be a rash of bank robbery movies?
It's a mess from start to finish, but there's still fun to be had in Rob Minkoff's caper comedy.
In the end, there's just a roomful of decent character actors in search of a point. For them, the titular "Flypaper" may have simply been a paycheck.
Audience Reviews for Flypaper
A total blast, it`s one of those films that would be just a crime to miss. A wickedly hilarious twist-a-minute comedy packed with action, suspense, witty characters, sharp writing and a wonderful all-star cast. It`s smart, stylish and unrelenting. A great movie. I loved it. A rich, slick and insanely enjoyable comedy. Patrick Dempsey is excellent, he has the perfect combination of charm, witt and charisma that makes him a stunning leading man. Ashley Judd is wonderful. Dempsey and Judd have great chemistry together, giving off plenty of great lines and romantic dazzle. Pruitt Taylor Vince and Tim Blake Nelson are outrageous together, such a blast of comic energy. Mekhi Phifer and Matt Ryan are terrific. A funny movie that packs just as much smarts and bullets to keep you entertained. A movie that knows how to enjoy itself, whether its in it`s thriller element, it`s action element or in it`s comedic element. A wonderful genre bender with a Hitchokian vibe to it. It works as heist thriller, an action movie and a romantic comedy.
Strictly amateur hour, despite the number of recognizable names in the cast. Not sure what they were trying to do, but the premise is so lame that the whole thing collapses before it gets going. I just could not get into this movie...
Two sets of bank robbers, one very sticky heist.
Good decent movie. This was a nice comedic bank robbery movie. It's a mix between films like Clue and The Bank Job. Many twist and turns made the movie better than it was. Nice cast especially the duo of Dempsey and Judd.
Tripp ('Patrick Dempsey' ) walks into a bank to get some change and ends up as a hostage to two bank robber-teams, robbing the bank he is at. In an almost Sherlock Holmesian way he has to solve this Agatha Christie inspired mystery and win the girls (Ashley Judd) heart. But not everything is at it seems, and there are many twists and turns in this comedy.

|Tripp:||For what it's worth you're a great bank robber.|
|Jelly:||You mean that? You are not just saying that because I have a gun pointed at your dick.|
|Gates:||Hakuna Matata motherfucker!|
