Thick as Thieves ★★½ 1999 (R)

Master thief Mackin (Baldwin) likes to get the job done and then return to his quietly sophisticated private life. Pointy (White) is the arrogant up-and-comer, with mob ties, who wants to eliminate the competition by setting Mackin up for a crime. The dual between the duo upsets mob boss Sal Capetti (Byrd) and has police officer Petrone (DeMornay) also very interested. 93m/C VHS, DVD .
