Reviews about Rob the Mob

Seattle Times
Moira MacDonald

It's a story so outlandish that it needs to be served by a combination of drama and comedy, and "Rob the Mob" finds that balance quite well.

As Tommy and Rosie, Pitt and Arianda are just the right kind of nuts, the right kind of dumb, the right kind of desperate and the right kind of in love to make it all go down like pie.

De Felitta has a feel for this world and its atmosphere, from the clutter and casual ugliness of the streets, to the insularity of the mentality, to the unexpected sweetness and vulnerability of the people.

One of the pleasures of Rob the Mob, director Raymond De Felitta's serio-comic crime drama, is watching Pitt and Arianda as the rambunctious, lovestruck pair who can't believe the scam they've stumbled upon.

"Rob the Mob" skims over the lifted-from-the-headlines exploits of an outlaw couple and gleans a humanist drama steeped in sentimentality.

A romance about two down-and-outers that reveals the workings of a whole citywide ecosystem of crime and punishment.

Offbeat crime drama Rob the Mob hits just the right semi-comic tone to pull off its outlandish, stranger-than-fiction true story.

By far one of the most fun mob thrillers we've seen in some time.

Arianda is warm and sharp and a paragon of cliché avoidance.

Philadelphia Daily News

The movie is full of quirky, usually worthwhile digressions (Andy Garcia has an expansive part as a mob boss) that add to its offbeat tone, further abetted by interesting musical choices and a very nice score by Stephan Endelman.
