Serious Jest: (Must See) Danny De Vito plays an awesome crime boss in this blue-collar heist flick. The story, plot, characters, and dialogue are all cleverly written, and the cast nails their roles. The special effects, stunts, and action scenes are not amazing or anything, but they’re appropriate…this movie relies more on its writing and acting to create suspense…like I said, blue collar.
