'Thin Ice' trailer: Murder and mayhem in the Midwest (but no wood chippers)

Posted on

A morally ambiguous Midwesterner trying to make a quick buck. A devious get-rich-quick scheme comically thwarted by a random act of violence. Snow — lots of snow. Before you run off to watch Fargo again, be sure to check out the trailer for Thin Ice, a Jill Sprecher-directed comedy that reunites a down-on-his-luck Greg Kinnear with his Little Miss Sunshine costar Alan Arkin. In the film — which hits select cities on Feb. 17 — Kinnear plays Mickey Prohaska, a crooked insurance agent who thinks he’s struck gold when he hears that Arkin is sitting on a (very) small fortune. His simple scheme to con the old man goes madcap when a violent locksmith (Billy Crudup) intervenes, putting the whole gang on some very, yep, thin ice.
