Critic Reviews for Welcome to Collinwood
It doesn't quite work, but there's enough here to make us look forward to the Russos' next offering.
Collinwood seems like a series of sketches, with caricatures instead of characters.
The picture runs a mere 84 minutes, but it's no glance. It's a head-turner -- thoughtfully written, beautifully read and, finally, deeply humanizing.
The actual heist is the high point, just as in the Italian film, and so raffish and disorganized was the gang that I can see how someone might enjoy this movie, coming to it for the first time.
An infectious caper flick.
Self-consciously quirky and straining for idiosyncrasy, Welcome to Collinwood is a passable ensemble comedy that never hits its stride.
Audience Reviews for Welcome to Collinwood
Entertaining and funny, Welcome to Collinwood is a nice film to watch, but certainly is very weak and poor; what make the original Italian classic comedy "I Soliti Ignoti" much more better.
Funny. Screwball kind of movie. Well done. William H. Macy is fantastic, as usual.
A gang of down at heel petty crooks inherit what they think is a perfect crime but in execution, things do not go as smoothly as they'd hoped. A kind of Ocean's Eleven for losers, Welcome To Collinwood is a comic heist film that smacks of trying way too hard. I was not surprised to learn it was a remake of a European film because of the broad slapstick and forced wackiness of the whole idea (Jerry Lewis is still one of the most popular comic actors on mainland Europe. Draw your own conclusions...) The cast are all OK and there is little here that offends, but the Clouseau-esque heist is typical of the tone of the whole film; ridiculous coincidences, surreal situations, heavy handed farce and slapstick that plays wholeheartedly for the cheap seats. It's not awful, but with the talent involved I expected a whole lot more.
