The Actors

THICK AS THIEVES. ONLY THICKER.

theactorsStage actor Anthony O’Malley (Michael Caine) talks a younger colleague (Dylan Moran) into a scheme to con a gangster (Michael Gambon) out of Ā£50,000. Watching Caine transform into a woman again, as he did in Dressed to Kill (1980), feels like a privilege but this minor comedy never even reached theaters in the U.S., in spite of his star billing. Moran does most of the work here, as the scheme requires him to play several outlandish characters. Some of them are funny, others tiresome. The same can be said of the film as a whole.
