The Italian Job is that perfect mix of comedy, action, and romance. A group of thieves pulls off an inspired scheme to heist a load of gold bars. The adventure leads them from Venice to Los Angelos and finishes with a car chase with three Mini Coopers, my favorite part.
Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron are sparkling as the leads. Seth Green is a riot as the token geek. The Italian Job has fast cars, good quips, and plenty of ingenuity.
