Plot Summary

Based on Elmore Leonard's novel "The Switch," 'Life of Crime' is a dark caper comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Will Forte, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher and Tim Robbins.  The wife (Jennifer Aniston) of a corrupt real estate developer (Tim Robbins) is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes), who intend to extort him with inside information about his crooked business and off-shore accounts. But the husband decides he'd actually rather not pay the ransom to get back his wife, setting off an unbelievable sequence of double crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of Elmore Leonard.

    Great cast, good story, but, a little meandering. The cast made it good but, a little lacking in places story wise. But over all I enjoyed it.

    sounds like and is a take off on O'Henry's short story, "The Ransom of Red Chief" made into a movie 50 or so years ago. still amusing.
