(USA/Great Britain/France, 2008, 111 minutes)

Three smalltime London crooks find themselves smack dab in the middle of a complicated real estate deal between a mob boss and a Russian entrepreneur, courtesy of the entrepreneur's glamorous accountant. Boisterous but overlong caper comedy-thriller that marks a return to form for its writer/director but is essentially more of the same, only better presented.
