SYNOPSIS

Ex-jailbirds Eddie (Sam Rockwell) and Paul (Ben Schwartz) are on parole and working in a New York diner. They’re best buddies and a team, but their lives are a dead end. That is, until English lawyer Katherine Rookwood (Phoebe Fox) walks into the diner with an offer they can’t refuse.
Her plan takes them to London. The prize they seek is a fabulous gem called the Blue Iguana. Up until this point Eddie and Paul’s outrageous antics have never had serious consequences and they’ve always wriggled out of danger, with a wisecrack, a weapon and a smile. But this time, the man who stands in their way is a psychotic small-time crime boss (Ferdinando). As the story plays along with all the black comic blood-letting, gunplay and danger, the unexpected consequence of Eddie and Katherine’s quest is True Love. 


REVIEWS

  • RogerEbert.com: Achieves a certain goofball charm. Rockwell and Fox, in particular, do wonderfully well.
  • Filmthreat.com: Sam Rockwell can do no wrong in the fast-paced action-caper genre and fans will love his performance. Ben Schwartz, on the other hand, holds his own portraying a decidedly different contrast to Rockwell. His performance is meant to be a little quirky as the hapless criminal. He’s fun to watch and never annoying. It gets a recommendation for Rockwell and Schwartz’s performance alone.
  • Carlosdev.wordpress.com: A solidly entertaining and often fun piece of work.
  • Thecriticalcritics.com: There are many hilarious aspects at work here, and there is enough creativity and technical know-how awash throughout the film to keep audiences pinned to their seats. Snappy dialogue and technical innovation, enough to garnering several small laughing fits.
  • Eyeforfilm.co.uk: The great British crime caper is alive and kicking in the 21st Century. An enjoyable evening's entertainment.Fanboynation.com: Fun to watch this cast as a crew of often inept criminals.
  • JBSpins.blogspot.com: A lot of fans will be very curious to see Rockwell in such a different context, so it is nice to be able to assure them that he does not disappoint. Hajaig wrote and helmed a breezy romp that actually skips over the Tarantino era, drawing inspiration from the uber-cool 1980s and the colorfully tacky 1970s. It is a nice balance of attitude and nostalgia that should garner enthusiastic word-of-mouth. Recommended for caper movie fans.
  • Punchdrunkcritics.com: The budding romance between Sam's character, Eddie, and Phoebe's character, Katherine, that due to their chemistry is fun to watch.
  • Thatmomentin.com: The cast is all up for the gig, with Schwartz working hard and a delightfully unhinged Peter Ferdinando as the mullet-wearing Deacon Bradshaw chewing up every scene he’s in. Rockwell is of course great fun to watch, earning some good moments with Fox and being the best reason to give this a look.
