    Early on, the film bristles with endorphins and oddness. show more

    Adam Nayman The Dissolve

    While Rob The Mob doesn’t ultimately hold together, it isn’t for a lack of trying by the performers or the filmmakers—like Tommy and Rosie, it’s doing its damnedest. show more

    Well-scripted, well-cast, well-edited, and well-directed true crime tale of two lovers whose naïve but comedic efforts to Rob The Mob successfully reflects the vulnerability of their victim
