Movie Info

An uneven but at times hilarious slapstick comedy, Too Many Crooks features an inept gang of four would-be criminals who manage to botch every job they plan. After a few dismal failures they try to rob the wealthy, philandering Billy Gordon (Terry-Thomas) and fail again. Unwilling to let go of a good resource when they see it, the gang decides to kidnap his daughter, drug her, put her in a coffin in a hearse, and take off to their safe hideaway in a mad, mad dash. The plan amazingly succeeds except for one minor detail -- they have kidnapped the tycoon's wife, and he could not be happier. The offended spouse sees red at her philandering husband's attitude and sets the stage for revenge. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

All Critics (2)

Uneven slapstick Brit comedy that is sometimes funny if you have a taste for the humor of Terry-Thomas.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Um elenco afinadíssimo, no qual se destacam Terry-Thomas, Cole e Bresslaw, mantém esta típica comédia britânica funcionando quase 50 anos depois.
