Audience Reviews for Small Time Crooks

  • Mar 04, 2012
    As preposterous as it is, Small Time Crooks is an effective, often hilarious, Woody Allen comedy. The script is full of witty dialogue, in classic Allen style, and keeps the film fresh with a number of plot twists. Good acting all around, with an especially good chemistry between Allen and Tracey Ulman. While it certainly doesn't have the most weighty themes like his dramatic works, it deals with its social commentary and ârags to richesâ? theme pretty effectively. Fast paced and consistently funny, itâ(TM)s definitely a worth seeing for Allen fans. 3.5/5 Stars

    Tolerable albeit forgettable Allen flick with enough laughs to keep the philistine's in check.

    Remotely funny, with several instances of pure comic genius, but mostly it's just a regular run of the mill Woody Allen movie, not the funniest, not the worst.

    Amusing but uneven bank heist caper with Elaine May as its brightest spot
