I'm happy to report that the new film, Small Time Crooks, is a return to good laughs and good fun.

Tracey Ullman is Allen's best on-screen match since Diane Keaton in Annie Hall; smart, funny, a fully-developed character.

Não é um filme espetacular, como alguns dos trabalhos anteriores de Allen, mas é bastante superior a diversas bobagens produzidas por Hollywood nos últimos tempos.

The talented comedian Tracey Ullman carries this comedy with her élan and spunky contentiousness.
February 17, 2002
The obviousness of the humour is fine, because the tone is so old-fashioned.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

I don't know if Small Time Crooks would appeal to a regular fan of Woody Allen's, but it should delight Tracy Ullman fans no matter what.

I wish I could recommend Small Time Crooks more strongly, but the truth is that it's a weak (bordering on inconsequential) entry into the director's canon.

The characters in Small Time Crooks are smarter, edgier and more original than the dreary crowd in so many new comedies.

This is vintage Allen, his powers intact after a string of increasingly cranky, creaky films in the last few years.

This hit-and-miss effort is a bit like watching your favorite home-run hitter trying to play out his career on two bad knees.

Ullman and Grant are fun to watch, but the real standout performance is Elaine May as Frenchy's dim-witted cousin.

There are just enough Woody sight gags and one-liners for this film to keep its head above water.

Small Time Crooks, finally, brings Allen back to form.
Susannah Breslin
TNT's Rough Cut
January 1, 2000
A bit slow, a bit been-done, and the bottom line is that Allen in a pair of shorts these days is a little rough on the eyes.

A return to the good old days of Woody Allen comedy.

Allen doesn't push the material as far or as hard as he might have.
