...a perfectly watchable (yet somewhat forgettable) piece of work.

Reel Film Reviews

Clearly, the filmmakers sacrificed internal logic in order to deliver a direct-to-video farce that clocks in at 90 minutes on the button.

Audience Reviews for The Maiden Heist


[img][/img] It's kind of upsetting knowing that the film was completely and unforgivably mismanaged by the studio that distributed it. If it recieved a more widespread release it could have achieved more success than it did but it didn't. The wonderful chemistry between Walkin, Freeman and Macy is fun to watch and definetely the most remarkable trait of the film. Even though the heist itself was highly unlikely to work I thought it was hilarious to watch the cast pull it off. The character drama is quite interesting and it made their characters very likable which is often difficult to do in crime movies. I found it very good hearted and above all hilarious. In the tradition of comedy caper's The Maiden Heist manages to stay cool, slick, and most remarkably thrilling. It's a little charming film that's fun while it lasts.

An improbable bit of fluff about museum security guards who've fallen in love with the pieces they protect and so decide to steal them. A top flight cast delivers charm ... which is really all this (a subversive comedy send-up jiving closeted gays) has going for it.

Very enjoyable movie with a bunch of great actors. How can you go wrong? William H. Macy adds so much to this movie that I chuckled all the way through.
