8 Great ... Comedic Heist Movies

There’s something very intense about the surgical precision of a great heist drama — Rififi, the grand-daddy of the genre, was banned in some countries for being too much of a how-to for crooks — and anything that super-serious becomes perfect fodder for comedy. Which leads us to the comedic-heist movie, which dates back as least as far as 1958’s Big Deal on Madonna Street (in which a pawnshop robbery goes hilariously awry) to this week’s Tower Heist. Slap on your safe-cracking gloves and check out some of our fave funny felonies, and share your own in the comments.
