Overall, it's less clever than [director] Miranda seems to think.

Miranda, a busy and successful director of commercials, shoots it all with slick economy and efficiency.

Top Critic

Berger appears to be a potential breakout talent, turning a character who could be endlessly irritating into an oddly charming, self-effacing rogue.

Low budget, but high pay off. This movie is slick, crafty and funny. Interesting premise and characters as well. Watch it and become a thief.

I dont know sometimes what attracts me to a movie, but this one definitely got me. A few minutes into it I was wondering if I even wanted to watch it. A few more minutes and I couldnt turn it off. Its hilarious! and for the look of a rather inexpensive movie, they found some really great actors and storyline. I REALLY REALLY liked this movie!

Skills Like This is a very fun and imaginitive comedy from director Monty Miranda. While the plot is pretty simple with a comedic writer leaving his job and pursuing a career by first robbing a bank, the actors involved really bring out the best in what the characters can be. The entire cast ranging from Spencer Berger to Brian D. Phelan to Kerry Knuppe are all great and even with a microbudget, the film still succeeds in telling a wonderful story and wonderful performances.
