Steal Big Steal Little (1995)


“[while filming Robert leaving the courtroom and a police officer blocks his way] To serve and protect the wealth! To serve and protect the wealth! ” – Dan McCann

Number of Times Seen – 1 (4 Jun 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Twin brothers try to get a hold of the fortune of their mother after she wills her fortune to just one of them.

My Take on it – Silly film that just doesn’t work at all.

Andy Garcia is a great actor, but even when he plays dual roles here, he still fails to make even one of them more interesting to care about.

The story does have a bunch of clever spots in it while dealing with the mistaken identities and the switching between these two identical twins as the story moves along.

The story itself is a complete mess and the way that things play out just never seems to work at all while trying to make things feel even more engaging.

The supporting cast is also great here, but the plot doesn’t really allow any of them to do much along the way.

Alan Arkin, Rachel Ticotin, Joe Pantoliano and Holland Taylor are all wasted here in theses very superficial and underdeveloped roles.

I’m still shocked when so many well known actors take on a very silly project like this one.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This was the last film to actually be released and distributed by the now-defunct Savoy Pictures. This movie was also one of the studio’s costliest flops in terms of the film’s budget, which studio insiders had stated was approximately between $35-50 million. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
