When a gang of French crooks jet to Chicago to pull off a heist, they are convinced that they are about to commit the perfect crime. But things start to go badly wrong the minute the motley crew touch down in the Windy City. First they seriously hack off some boys in the hood, then they steal a set of wheels from a badass street gang, before finally burgling the wrong house and accidentally ripping off Chicago's meanest mob boss. And to top it all, the local cops and the FBI would like a word... In over their heads and on the run from just about everyone in town, it looks like time may be up for our not so wise guys.
A cleverly written comedy crime caper

The plot of 'Crime Spree' is quite simple; six bumbling French crooks are sent to Chicago to steal some jewellery, end up going to the wrong house and robbing the local mafia boss. But what makes Crime Spree special is the endearing nature of the cast; you'll soon find yourself rooting for this inept bunch of crooks and hoping that they can find a way out of the mess they've created. Harvey Keitel is a great in his role as the mafia boss and the French cast lead by Gerard Depardieu play very well off each other. Packed with some great comic moments and a great storyline, 'Crime Spree' is well worth a look.
