    The movie grows progressively more routine in quarter-hour increments, eventually collapsing under the weight of its own insignificance.

    The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt

    The heist itself is almost dull, and the characters aren't half as colorful or interesting as they need to be.

    A fun-in-the-sun heist caper that director Brett Ratner stages as if he were the activities director of a cruise ship.

Not for kids 15 and under

Unappealing characters and a dumb story. Skip it.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some strong sexual references and situations for a PG-13. Characters drink, smoke, and use strong language. A character is a drug dealer. There is fighting and gunplay. Characters are shot, and one is killed. The main characters are jewel thieves and the story includes lying and betrayal. The movie is oddly homophobic, with humor built on misinterpreted situations. A strength of the movie is positive portrayals of female and minority characters and inter-racial relationships.

  • Families can talk about why Lola and Max had different attitudes toward retirement. Are you or aren't you the kind of person who enjoys watching a sunset? Why?
