Palookaville Review

Very cute and quirky, this indie comedy has three friends haplessly trying to make a go at it as crooks. Funny (yet done better in Small Time Crooks), these guys are so clueless they actually rent old heist movies to get tips on robbing an armored car. Naturally, the whole town seems to pop in on them to watch alongside. Very pleasant but it's a road we've been down a time or two before (and since). But let me point one thing out: Whatever they did to make Frances McDormand look so damn hot, well, it worked.
