All Critics (6) holds up nicely all these years later as an unpredictable, often hilarious, heist romp, showcasing Shirley MacLaine's comic gifts.

This agreeable caper comedy was amusingly advertised with the tagline, "Go Ahead Tell the End (It's Too Hilarious to Keep Secret) But Please Don't Tell the Beginning!"

Uma sacada genial no primeiro ato que eleva todo o restante do filme por contraste, além de trazer o trio principal afiadíssimo.

March 10, 2011 | Rating: 4/5

Fun, albeit dated, caper movie with well matched MacLaine and Caine.

March 14, 2009 | Rating: 3/5

Shirley MacLaine is miscast, but Michael Caine in a banner year that also saw him play the Oscar-nominated Alfie, gives a shrewd and suave performance in Roland Neame's heist picture.
