Small Time Crooks

Entertaining Woody Allen film that is surprisingly low on plot substance but is thankfully full of his witty humor. A bunch of amateur criminals buy a shop so they can use the basement to dig a tunnel to the nearby bank to make a fortune. To cover up their evil deeds, they start use the upper-part of the shop as a cookie business, you know, an idea that will never sell. Rather than trying to grab an Oscar, Allen purely strives for an audience-pleaser. Allen fans should love it!
