WELCOME TO COLLINWOOD (2003)

MPAA Rating: PG-13, R
EW's GRADE
D+

Details Release Date: Mar 18, 2003; Movie Rateds: PG-13, R; Genres: Comedy, Mystery and Thriller; With: Andrew Davoli, Michael Jeter, William H. Macy, Sam Rockwell and Isaiah Washington; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Once again superior to the material he's given to work with, Rockwell leads a pratfall-prone troupe in a heist destined to go wrong. For a comedy in which sharp humor means a feeble sight gag involving a wheelchair, a rabbi outfit, and George Clooney -- who produced the film with Steven Soderbergh -- the most intriguing part is not finding out whether Rockwell's nimrod squad can pull off their job, but seeing if they'll generate even one laugh along the way.
