Nods to the sort of chintzy cool that made other Clooney collaborations Ocean's 11 and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind so good give this bumbling-criminals comedy a Coen brothers/younger, angrier Woody Allen sort of feel.

A gang of the the unluckiest crooks ever assembled plan and execute a big heist, and as Murphy said, anything that can go wrong...

Featuring some of the best casting of recent times, it's almost a sort of Coen/Section 8 festival, complete with sharp and snappy scripting, a cool lounge soundtrack and excellent comic timing from everyone involved.

Although only in a few scenes, Clooney coproduced with pal Steven Soderbergh and their influence shows.
