Nice Twist on Caper Films
27 June 1999 | by brontySee all my reviews

Four women whose husbands are in prison come together; at first, for emotional support; later, they devise a scheme to rob a bank. This takes up a large part of the film and it is particularly inspired and funny. The actual heist involves our four likable heroines dressing in mens tuxedos (hence, in part, the title of the film). If you love 'caper' films, you'll really go for this! (Note: not on tape and not often rerun on TV so keep an eye out for it.)
