Saw this movie many years ago and really enjoyed it.

Worth the watch.

There were a lot of boring moments.

Movies that depend on mistaken identities for their laughs are among the slowest, dreariest slogs through cinema.

The ending is unexpected and superb.

It moves along at a decent clip, with an extremely good opening of Bobby|Russo|, Ned|DeNiro| and Jim|Penn| escaping from prison, it was funny and very exciting.

A big yawn!

This film is thrilling, exciting, clever, and educational & did I mention funny...

It's charming at times, engaging at others, and all the cast work well.

The acting is what makes this film enjoyable.

There were a lot of boring moments.

We honestly like the two main characters, and this is one of the main reasons the film is so compelling.

Demi Moore plays the cliché, the whole cliché and nuttin' but the cliché.

He was intense and no BS in his pursuit of the escaped cons.

It's a waste of time.

I was on the edge of my seat, hoping that Penn and DeNiro make-good their escape to Canada, while at the same time, noticing the relaxed, comfortable overall feel of the movie.

What could be formulaic actually has some grit and ambiance to go along with its slapstick.

We're No Angel is far from being one of the greatest comedies out there, actually, very far from that, but still enjoyable...
