Three brothers who are inept criminals butcher one last attempt to pull off a big heist in this caper comedy. Bill Firpo (Nicolas Cage) is sick of thievery and has retired from crime to run an upscale restaurant in New York. But when his two brothers, Alvin (Dana Carvey) and Dave (Jon Lovitz), get out of prison, Bill is sucked back into their world of crime.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Has enough in the way of sentiment and goofy situational predicaments to put it over as a serviceable family holiday attraction.
Cage looks cold most of the time, and has retractable stubble. The rest of the cast look like they're waiting for summer.
Considering that there isn't a single laugh in the whole picture, the term 'comedy' must be used loosely.
The question is, can a trio of amiable goofballs take you through a movie that's, well, not so great?
This silly action comedy mixes brilliant production design -- it looks like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life -- and cloying sentimentality to no good effect.
Harmless and totally familiar, it's better than static and informercials, but that's about the sum of it.
Horrible. Terrible. Unfunny.
A funny little movie
