These people offer no sense that they exist beyond the bits of exposition that Allen has written into his screenplay.

This is vintage Allen, his powers intact after a string of increasingly cranky, creaky films in the last few years.

It plays more like a second draft than a final product.

Allen's performance, like the movie, feels less manic than his standard comic persona.

Small Time Crooks, isn't anywhere near as hilarious as I hoped it would be.

Allen's funniest, least sour outing in nearly a decade is a small movie with a tidy payoff.

The characters in Small Time Crooks are smarter, edgier and more original than the dreary crowd in so many new comedies.

A half-baked affair that's a pastiche of better, more inventive comedies.

I wish I could recommend Small Time Crooks more strongly, but the truth is that it's a weak (bordering on inconsequential) entry into the director's canon.

Small Time Crooks is a small-change Woody Allen film. It's also the writer-director's funniest in years.
