By Scott Goldfine

William Forsythe stars as the introverted member of a trio of New Jersey friends down on their luck in this light, whimsical comedy. Turning to crime, the unemployed hombres discover they’re not cut out for the racket as they bungle a couple of supposedly can’t-miss capers.

Despite their failing scruples, the boys’ naivety elicits empathy in a small film that delivers big entertainment. Rated R.
