Welcome to Collinwood
A group of likable losers try to pull of what by their standards seems like a major heist in this offbeat crime comedy, loosely based on the classic Italian caper comedy I Soliti Ignoti. A group of sad sacks living in a rundown neighborhood in Cleveland all have one thing in common -- they need money, and aren't especially fussy about how they get it. Riley (William H. Macy) is a guy whose wife has been sent to jail, leaving him to look after their baby, when she's unable to pay a fine. Pero (Sam Rockwell) is in love with a beautiful girl (Jennifer Esposito) who has a roving eye, and… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It doesn't quite work, but there's enough here to make us look forward to the Russos' next offering."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"The actual heist is the high point, just as in the Italian film, and so raffish and disorganized was the gang that I can see how someone might enjoy this movie, coming to it for the first time."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This is a great robbery farce enforced by excellent writing and great acting from a stellar cast."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The film looks and sounds bright and bouncy, and it's full of reliable old comic devices like characters absurdly repeating themselves and asking incredulous questions."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"It's a bellini."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"Collinwood seems like a series of sketches, with caricatures instead of characters."
‑ Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
"An infectious caper flick."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"An occasionally amusing but completely disposable comedy of errors that's not nearly as funny as it thinks it is."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Enjoyably dumb, sweet, and intermittently hilarious -- if you've a taste for the quirky, steal a glimpse."
‑ Nev Pierce, BBC.com
"Just a bunch of good actors flailing around in a caper that's neither original nor terribly funny."
‑ Kim Linekin, eye WEEKLY
"The picture runs a mere 84 minutes, but it's no glance. It's a head-turner -- thoughtfully written, beautifully read and, finally, deeply humanizing."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Self-consciously quirky and straining for idiosyncrasy, Welcome to Collinwood is a passable ensemble comedy that never hits its stride."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"Collinwood is certainly one dimensional, but it's a nice dimension. Pleasant. Smile-inducing. Fun."
‑ Oz, eFilmCritic.com
"It's excessively quirky and a little underconfident in its delivery, but otherwise this is the best 'old neighborhood' project since Christopher Walken kinda romanced Cyndi Lauper in The Opportunists."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
"The kind of film that leaves you scratching your head in amazement over the fact that so many talented people could participate in such an ill-advised and poorly executed idea."
‑ Nick Schager, Matinee Magazine
