How to Steal a Million Review

This lesser known classic is worth a watch, even if only for Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole. The film is shot in lovely locales, and with plenty of talent, but fails to ever deliver on the scope one might hope for. Most of the goings-on happen to go on in a single space, which is a let-down if you are expecting anything more. More than anything, it seems the movie is an excuse to pair two classic stars in an uneventful but somewhat sensational romance. There are anywhere up to eleven kisses involved, and while I like a romance as much as the next person (when tasteful, non-explicit and virtuous…ha ha, rare? Yes…), I felt this was a little overboard. The film also features quite prominently a nude female statuette, as well as an assortment of varied art in the form of sculptures and paintings depicting nudity in degrees of anatomical exactness. If that sort of thing is likely to disturb you or your children, certainly preview it in case.

This title has:

Too much sex
