THE THING

"Rob The Mob" expands to many more theaters this weekend--click here and go to the "tickets" section to see all the new venues. And a few new reviews are in.

Dig Newsday's review. Long Island came through for us.

And the San Francisco Chronicle rather likes us as well.

The San Francisco Examiner has some quibbles, but I'm putting this in the plus column anyway.

And in Miami, the internettishly-named Miami.com gives us four out of five...dots? coms?

Here's a review that's worth a glance from Cinema Viewfinder.

And dig this from the curiously named Moviesharkdeblore.

Here's a nice gallery of photos from the movie from Mercury News.

One of the real pleasures of having a movie with a 78% Tomatometer rating is finding the occasional isolated pan. As I generally only print reviews with which I agree (and fortunately that's been the case with most of them with this film), I hearby make the exception that proves the rule.

Meet Bill Wine and enjoy his lonely dissertation on why 'Rob The Mob' just doesn't work. If you'd like to know more about Mr. Wine, read the below. I'm looking forward to reading Mr. Wine's plays, catching his controversial podcast "Yada Yada Movies!" and perhaps even speaking at La Salle University, assuming he invites me one day and tells me where La Salle University is.
