Welcome to Collinwood
2002
When small-time thug Cosimo (Luis Guzman) lands in prison, he learns about a plan for the perfect heist -- but needs someone on the outside to pull it off. Soon, he's contending with a motley crew of screw-ups and losers (including Isaiah Washington, Sam Rockwell and William H. Macy) vying for the job. With the help of a wheelchair-bound safecracker (George Clooney), the team bumbles into misstep after misstep in pursuit of a small fortune.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

I haven't seen the original, but I can imagine how good it is. This film, while breezy and fun, is clearly a knockoff of something better. You expect to see the actors enjoying themselves because you know they only did the movie to crack each other up and have a good time. The acting is good and the timing exquisite, but there are no big laughs and you see every joke coming. At least it doesn't suffer for lack of momentum, as there isn't a dull moment, but at 84 minutes you wish they had provided an epilogue. Luis Guzmán rules.
