After reading some of the other reviews I thought this movie would be dreadful, and now that I think about it, that predisposed me a little bit to the negative side. However having watched it, I can say I really don't understand those people who didn't like it. Yeah, yeah, it has all the atmosphere and little flaws an independent film tends to have, but even among all that, the story, silly as it is, works smoothly due to its lead characters -and actors-. Caine and Moran shine, and that is all that counts, I think. Special mention to Sir Gambon's performance (made me laugh a lot...that toupee! lol!) and the little girl who plays Moran's niece (lovely!).
This is actually a very sweet movie that gives you a load of laughs and an enjoyable dose of sillines.
