This movie is just kinda dumb. For a long time I thought it was based on the Elmore Leonard book of the same title, but it's not. Bruce Willis (smirky) and Bill Bob Thornton (neurotic) play two bank robbers who take a hostage (Cate Blanchett), whom they both fall for. Wacky hijinks ensue. Oregonians will enjoy seeing Oregon City, where they rob a bank, and the Broadway Bridge, which Thornton walks across. The movie doesn't really work as a crime story or as a comedy. I imagine somebody pitched it as "Butch Cassidy" meets "Jules & Jim." January Jones has an early role as a hitchhiker. Barry Levinson ("Rain Man," "Wag the Dog") directs in his usual blandly competent manner.

Broad comedy with a nod to old-style buddy movies (e.g., Martin & Lewis, Hope & Crosby), where plausibility is not a major concern. Entertaining with solid acting from the 3 leads, but it was a bit long.

Genuinely funny and surprising, offbeat story of a couple of unlikely bank robbers and the woman they both love. Excellent performance by Billy Bob Thornton as one of the robbers. Overall an original, entertaining film.
