    Candice played a strong, cool character. Grodins character and commentary tickled me. Great chemistry between those two. Loved seeing the beautiful, vintage cars. Ending gets pretty wacky. It was a little slower than necessary at times. But not predictable. I will watch it again. Plus, it is awfully quotable. Maybe more people should watch it so we can do that.

    Enjoyable diamond heist caper with Charles Grodin (who was a co-writer) providing a laid back performance and some sardonic voice over narration. Supporting performances by Candice Bergen, John Gielgud, Trevor Howard and James Mason are good. Also has a wonderful score by Michael J. Lewis.

    Breezy little caper comedy with an expert cast and a jaunty pace. Grodin's voice over is a nice touch. Candice Bergen shows her adaptness at comedy years before Murphy Brown.

    A fun and different kind of heist film. Despite only seeing the TV cut, I enjoyed the heck out of it. They even find a reason to have a big car chase near the end, with Candice Bergen at the wheel (!). What's not to like. Aram Avakian brings a sort of quirkiness to it, and it's cool to see the dad from the Beethoven movies in another role.
