We gave it a C+

In Thick as Thieves, a jazz-loving thief (Baldwin), hired to pilfer a fortune in food stamps, gets double-crossed by an urban crime lord/restaurateur/golf nut (White) who is also responsible for the murder of his terminally ill pooch. Wacky, huh? That’s just what this over-deliberate bebop noir wants you to think. Ah, but the cast — including Andre Braugher, Janeane Garofalo, Bruce Greenwood, and Khandi Alexander — makes this renter a steal. C+
