When petty thief Cosimo (Luis Guzman) is given the plan for the perfect Bellini from a lifer in prison, he has to get out of jail, fast. But with Cosimo stuck in the joint, it's up to his girl Rosalind (Patricia Clarkson) to track down a replacement. While no one wants to do the time for Cosimo's crime, everybody seems to know a guy who will - and for a share, they're willing to track him down. Before long, Rosalind has five guys trailing behind her, looking to get their filthy hands on a piece of the action.
A much underrated movie
- Welcome to Collinwood review by CP Customer
Welcome to Collinwood is one of those little gems of a movie that bombed at the box office and is slowly gaining status as a cult classic. The story is based around a group of bumbling petty crooks trying to pull off the biggest heist of their lives with disastrous results. The movie very much has a feel of a Coen brothers comedy with smart witty dialogue and slapstick scenes that had me laughing out loud. The cast is superb, with the late Michael Jeter giving a standout performance as Tito. Likeable, funny, engaging, and downright hilarious towards the end, for fans of quirky comedies Welcome to Collinwood is a must see movie!

- Welcome to Collinwood review by JD
This is from exactly the same genre as Oceans... except in an overacted style. It is light hearted fun but pretty pointless and not very slick. In short, amateur but moderately amusing.

A sort of Brian Rix farce
- Welcome to Collinwood review by AB
Where things could go wrong, they do, in this film that is more akin to a farce than a storyline, with events getting in the way of everything the boys plan and try to execute.
Has its moments, good and bad, but overall an enjoyable film
