Woody Allen made this mockumentary about an inept bank robber before it was cool or at least before everyone else was doing it. Whether he is trying to escape San Quentin using a bar of soap, playing the cello, having trouble explaining his hold up in a bank, or escaping with members of a chain gang, this film has genuinely funny moments. The narration is an important touch, there are pretend interviews, and of course Woody Allen playing the inept Virgil as he seemingly plays all his roles. Janet Margolin is funny opposite Allen simply for the fact that she is so beautiful, and he is, well, Virgil Starkwell, the world’s most inept, conniving, lying, yet lovable criminal. This is certainly is not Allen’s best film and the editing probably could have been better, but he was just getting started after all. It seemed like this film had some similarities (although more comedic) to Bonnie and Clyde and Cool Hand Luke.
