There's nothing like a good robbery… to bring a family together. It's the perfect crime: put a key card in the lock, get in, get out and split one million dollars. No violence, no guesswork, no cops, no sweat. What could go wrong?
What doesn't go wrong? Sean Connery and Dustin Hoffman team with Matthew Broderick to play three generations of the same family, intent on Family Business burglary. Somehow, someway, they're determined to make crime pay. But the real payoff is seeing these three great stars in this movie directed by Sidney Lumet.
- " A terrific seriocomic crime caper that nobody knew how to sell. Often feels like a 1970s movie that somehow ended up in 1989. " – Chuck O'Leary
- " [S]urprisingly compelling. " – MaryAnn Johanson
- " All of the scenes establishing the characters and setting up the caper are joyful to watch, mostly because of the rich comic exaggerations of the Connery character. " – Roger Ebert
