Movie Info

A bumbling group of jewel thieves become the hottest thing since The Wiggles after dressing up like a children's singing group in order to snatch a priceless necklace. Danny (Nick Giannopoulos) isn't much of an entertainer, so when Marcus (Russell Dykstra) tries to recruit him to lift a necklace from wealthy Aurora Van Dyke (Lena Cruz) he senses an opportunity for some quick cash. Aurora has scheduled a birthday party for her child, and the best-loved children's performers from miles around are coming in for the big event. When the heist hits a hitch and the robbers ditch the necklace to make a daring escape, they thought their ordeal was over. Little did they realize that their group, The Wannabes, made quite an impression at the party, and they've since developed a nation wide following. Now, as Aurora attempts to prove that it was they who tried to swipe her necklace, Marcus does his best to win the heart of Kristy (Isla Fischer), the head criminal ringleader's sister. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Criminal Ways

Terrible acting with a pathetic plot and a cheat budget = terrible movie. The only reason I even watched this movie is because Isla Fisher is in it and she's barely even on screen. Don't waste your time.

I am watching this movie with my husband and it is horrible dribble. There's nothing worse than a movie which is blatantly trying to be funny and can't succeed enough to make us laugh once. It is NOT even entertaining! It's so bad that 3/4 of the way through the movie I had to stop and see what other rotten tomato critics think. It's a total stinkbomb. Whoever talked Isla into doing this movie needs to be fired.

It gets off to a very slow start, and even once it gets going, it’s still not very good. It’s just not really funny. Isla Fisher is good, but Nick Giannopoulis really isn't very good. Low budget and not very well made.
