Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 06/22/2001
"...Widely regarded as the funniest caper movie ever..."
Premiere - 08/01/2006
"A fortuitous, one-time-only coupling of slapstick and the neorealist ethos."
Wall Street Journal - 11/05/2010
"This leisurely, sweet-spirited Italian comedy directed by Mario Monicelli was conceived as a spoof of the now-classic RIFIFI..."

Product Description:

A classic account of the misadventures of a group of amateurish crooks. The hapless and bungling group of burglars try to break into a store from an apartment next door -- only to find they've drilled through a wall to another room in the same apartment. Each thief comes to the job with a distraction, and the gang's technical expert, who proffers an elaborate burglary lecture, retires to the bathroom when it comes time to do the actual work. After this arduous all-night heist attempt, dawn breaks and they all decide to go home.
