Audience Reviews for Palookaville


Understated comedy about inept criminals featuring lesser-known actors. (Not nearly as bad as it sounds.)

Randy Tippy

Super Reviewer


Nice little indie film. Forsythe, Gallo and Trese are great in the prospective roles and what the film lacks in conclusion, it make up for in humour.

Anthony Lawrie

Super Reviewer

A very amusing left field heist movie with plenty of laughs and a very "indie" feel. Fans of QT and Guy Ritchie should definitely check it out.
