Making romance a big part of the mix dooms a movie already saddled with one of the worst titles in recent memory.
Romantic comedies are often as contrived and irritating as "Loosies," but few feature a lead character so lacking in appeal.
Facinelli's transformation from feckless charmer to committed caretaker seems contrived, leaving the film feeling like a series of stitched-together scenes with little internal drive.
Not a great movie, but satisfying enough to hold attention and win your affection -- a rare blue-plate combo on today's overcrowded menu of movie chaos that sticks to your ribs and stays there.
Loosies has a bevy of colorful character actors -- from Michael Madsen and William Forsythe to Vincent Gallo and Joe Pantoliano -- but little character.
An amorphous, laugh-flecked drama about a New York City pickpocket that mostly comes across as a feature-length advertisement for its likable star and writer, Peter Facinelli.
Loosies is, despite the awful name which refers to cigarettes being bought as singles, pretty entertaining.
Violent redemption tale has mature themes, profanity.
a very transparent vehicle for Facinelli
Facinelli brings charisma to his lead role, but the script is an unconvincing series of contrivances.
Far from perfect, but just smart enough to keep you plugged in and not make you regret investing time.
Screams first time feature and, the funny thing is, that comes more so from the seasoned director than it does from the first time writer.
Considering that this movie had the two biggest B-movie kings (Michael Madsen, and William Forsythe), should have been my first clue that is was going to be just so-so. ...and it was.
It's not the worst romantic comedy out there, but it's too familiar, stupid, and cliched to really make it worth watching. We know where the film's going to go, the entire premise is distractedly silly, and it's just not that funny. The acting is all pretty serviceable, but the chemistry is lacking, and the material doesn't do them any favors. It doesn't go any place particularly unique, but instead follows a very predictable formula, and not in a particularly interesting way. The execution, like most of the film, is passable but not engaging. At the end you have a forgettable, and largely lackluster romcom.
