Welcome to Collinwood (2002)

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… More

Consensus: Contains some funny moments, but it's still a very lightweight comedy.

It doesn't quite work, but there's enough here to make us look forward to the Russos' next offering.

Chicago Sun-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.

This is a great robbery farce enforced by excellent writing and great acting from a stellar cast.

Collinwood seems like a series of sketches, with caricatures instead of characters.

An infectious caper flick.

Michael Dequina

An occasionally amusing but completely disposable comedy of errors that's not nearly as funny as it thinks it is.

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.

Self-consciously quirky and straining for idiosyncrasy, Welcome to Collinwood is a passable ensemble comedy that never hits its stride.


Collinwood is certainly one dimensional, but it's a nice dimension. Pleasant. Smile-inducing. Fun.

Funny. Screwball kind of movie. Well done. William H. Macy is fantastic, as usual.
