...a perfectly watchable (yet somewhat forgettable) piece of work.

Clearly, the filmmakers sacrificed internal logic in order to deliver a direct-to-video farce that clocks in at 90 minutes on the button.

Audience Reviews for The Maiden Heist

The central idea is a sweet one but the story/plot is full of gaps and holes and pointless subplots, basically it's the worst kind of Heist film in that respect. It doesn't help that it was totally mis-sold as a real crime caper instead of the light-hearted comedy that it real is. The front cover of the copy I watched (the UK version) has a picture of all three actors holding guns, something that none of them did in the film. Why do that I wonder, no one is going to thank or trust you for tricking them into seeing something they don't necessarily want to see. The minds of greedy producers eh! The Heist or The Maiden Heist isn't a great Heist film but the idea and more importantly, the four main actors Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken, William H. Macy and Marcia Gay Harden make it highly watchable and very likable. It's this likability that is so strong that you will forgive most it's flaws and enjoy, I did anyway.

It's kind of upsetting knowing that the film was completely and unforgivably mismanaged by the studio that distributed it. If it recieved a more widespread release it could have achieved more success than it did but it didn't. The wonderful chemistry between Walkin, Freeman and Macy is fun to watch and definetely the most remarkable trait of the film. Even though the heist itself was highly unlikely to work I thought it was hilarious to watch the cast pull it off. The character drama is quite interesting and it made their characters very likable which is often difficult to do in crime movies. I found it very good hearted and above all hilarious. In the tradition of comedy caper's The Maiden Heist manages to stay cool, slick, and most remarkably thrilling. It's a little charming film that's fun while it lasts.

An improbable bit of fluff about museum security guards who've fallen in love with the pieces they protect and so decide to steal them. A top flight cast delivers charm ... which is really all this (a subversive comedy send-up jiving closeted gays) has going for it.

Very enjoyable movie with a bunch of great actors. How can you go wrong? William H. Macy adds so much to this movie that I chuckled all the way through.
