A minor, but enjoyable crime-gone-wrong story
3 February 2001 | by shaneo3550See all my reviews

A call to a wrong number leads to the downfall of a group of robbers. Typical of many others of it's time - the police are helpful, the crooks are greedy and squabbling, and the apparently doddering old lady still has her wits about her. No real surprises here, but still quaint and fun to watch.
