Consensus: The light and comic Ladron que roba a Ladron isn't deep or hugely substantial, but it's still a very fun heist flick nonetheless.

Robert Koehler

Comic touches are obvious and broad, while helmer Joe Menendez lacks the essential energy for a vital heist entertainment.

Subtitled heist movie for teens and up scores.
