Movie Info

This stylish, star-studded caper comedy stars Uma Thurman (Kill Bill franchise) as Harriet and Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight) as Peter, a con-artist couple cooking up a jewel-theft scam in L.A. to pay off sexy gangster Irina (played by Maggie Q). Having squandered Irina's loot one drunken night, Harriet and Peter escape to Hollywood, where they plot to steal a priceless jewel from Peter's loopy ex-wife (Alice Eve) to repay the debt. The dazzling cast also includes Parker Posey (Superman Returns) and Sofia Vergara (TV's "Modern Family").

The kind of movie that seems to think a heap of outrageous details equals a characterization.

What begins as a seemingly simple heist loses steam and focus amid a pileup of Hollywood-style nuts and narcissists...

Tries too hard to be funny.

None of the film's fine actors make us laugh while watching this misguided comedy, but Uma Thurman oozes so much glamour she holds our interest in all of her scenes.

Means to be edgy and cheeky, yet it's always struggling for oxygen, with Oakley stuck trying to create something appealing when every person onscreen deserves to be pushed into the nearest river.
