The first 3 minutes are a bit raunchy but Marisa is one fine lady. Everything that can go wrong with a robbery does go wrong. Very good movie.

I watched this movie earlier today, and i thought it was so so. If you can make it through seeing Hoffman naked the first couple of minutes then it turns out to be well still so so!

The basic storyline would have been better without all the raunch. The F word and raunch are the center of the movie whereas the unlikely attraction of the polar opposites and her mixed up family was really a good starting point for developing a interesting comparison of "love" and "attraction" of polar opposite that end up actually loving each other.
