A delightful thriller/comedy about a group of mostly amateur thieves who endeavors to steal the world's most difficult item to take: the priceless dagger from the Constantinople Museum. The going seems tricky, but as every clever master criminal knows, there is a way around everything. The cast is unforgettably perfect who gives utterly impeccable performances; one of the best group of actors ever brought to the screen! The premise is completely enjoyable and is definitely recommended to everyone! What a perfect movie; I absolutely adore it!
