We gave it a C+

A harmless crime caper. It stars Peter Facinelli (Nurse Jackie, the Twilight series), who also wrote the script, shaping the movie to his facile, unlayered charm. He plays Bobby, a pickpocket who’s really a criminal saint (he steals because his daddy left him half a million dollars in debt). When an ex-lover (Jaimie Alexander) tells him she’s pregnant, his path to redemption begins. It’s watchable piffle, but the only real note of surprise comes from Vincent Gallo, who plays Bobby’s screw-tightening boss with rumpled conviction. (Also available on VOD) C+
