One enters the theater with great expectations. And one leaves muttering '"Promises, promises.'' Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The Hot Rock is different from a lot of Big Heist flicks because Goldman and Yates lay on the characterization and the locations with a too-generous hand. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Those seeking something a little more off the beaten path than The Natural or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid should check out this entertaining caper yarn. Full Review

Description by

Robert Redford, George Segal and Zero Mostel head a crack cast in this hilarious comedy about jewel thieves out to score the biggest heist of their lives.

When John Dortmunder (Redford) learns that a huge, rare diamond is just waiting to be lifted in Manhattan, he assembles a team of pros to try to steal the stone. But all that glitters is not easily gotten, and, despite their careful planning and execution, actually stealing the gem proves a challenge far greater than any of the men bargained for.

Product Description:

THE HOT ROCK is an hysterical heist picture in which a sophisticated gang of thieves (including Robert Redford, George Segal, and Zero Mostel) falls victim to a slapstick comedy of errors while trying to lift a giant diamond from a heavily guarded museum. The screenplay by William Goldman is based on the novel by Donald E. Westlake.
