Consensus: Thanks to energetic performances from its young leads, Gimme The Loot captures a slice of city life with warmth and exuberance.

Amid all the copycatting and pricey bombast and genericness, here's a movie that looks like it hails from a real place; whose characters sound like they come from somewhere; whose stakes are stresslessly low.

It may be a slight movie, but it has its sunny charms.

Watching this film reminded me a bit of 'Friends,' the funny TV show where nothing ever happens. Here, there is a lot of activity, but nothing much is accomplished, except for the creation of a funny, entertaining movie.

A thousand-watt jolt of mischief, a spunky, funky, ebullient indie that packs its 81 minutes with cinematic exhilaration.

Boston Globe

As it lopes along, the movie offers a warm but very sharp portrait of New York's have-nots and their uneasy relationship with the haves.

'Gimme the Loot'. Three likeable leads including the city of New York, which is very much a character in its own right.
