Story


Fresh out of prison, where they bonded over their similar convictions for grand theft auto, Ordell (Mos Def) and Louis (Hawkes) have already decided to team up when they catch wind of Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), a Detroit property developer and secret embezzler. Their plan is simple: they'll kidnap Frank's country-club wife, Mickey (Jennifer Aniston), and hold her for ransom. What the duo didn't count on is that Frank's affections have turned to his perky young mistress, Melanie (Isla Fisher), and he may not be in a rush to rescue his spouse. Eliciting Mickey's insider knowledge, the crooks shift gears, frantically devising a new plan.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..ultimately it's the cast, more than the crime, that gives this story life..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..Schechter's soul-scored film is impeccably styled for the time period, and its easy pacing reminds me of the gold standard for Leonard adaptations, "Out of Sight"..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
