Small Time Crooks is appealing.
January 1, 2000
The characters in Small Time Crooks are smarter, edgier and more original than the dreary crowd in so many new comedies.

Allen's funniest, least sour outing in nearly a decade is a small movie with a tidy payoff.
January 1, 2000
These people offer no sense that they exist beyond the bits of exposition that Allen has written into his screenplay.

A half-baked affair that's a pastiche of better, more inventive comedies.

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.

January 1, 2000
Allen's performance, like the movie, feels less manic than his standard comic persona.
January 1, 2000
Small Time Crooks, isn't anywhere near as hilarious as I hoped it would be.
January 1, 2000
Small Time Crooks is a small-change Woody Allen film. It's also the writer-director's funniest in years.
January 1, 2000
More fun than anything Woody Allen has written and directed since Bullets Over Broadway.
January 1, 2000
A lot of it is enjoyable.
