A comedy centered on three museum security guards who devise a plan to steal back the artworks to which they have become attached after they are transferred to another museum.
Directed: Peter Hewitt
What we think: There is a lot to be said for misinterpretation of a film, and when I saw The Heist or (The Maiden Heist as it is called) sat on the shelf showcasing the talents of Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken and William H. Macy I naturally grabbed it straight away.
From first glance (see cover) and from reading the blurb on the back it looked like a slick action heist film with an all-star cast, what you actually get is the complete polar opposite.
Freeman, Walken and Macy play three aging security guards at a museum who are all each fascinated with a particular piece of individual art.
