"Walken. Lauper. Silly heist and regional accents. See."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
"The whole film is distributed with bursts of short dialogue that, coupled to the actors' gestures, reveal the people in minimum time."
‑ Peter Henne, Film Journal International
"Here we have a bittersweet little character study masquerading as a caper flick."
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"slow slow pace"
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
