This has a strong cast, but then that's usually the least of the problems facing most British comedies - it's the uninspired direction and script that leave the talented players floundering. Alfred Molina and Helen Slater play the amateur crooks out to rob a City firm, who get mixed up in an increasingly hysterical series of misadventures. The leads do their best, and there are enthusiastic turns from the likes of Jack Dee, Stephen Fry, Dinsdale Landen and Peter Bowles, yet this must go down as another missed opportunity.
