Jack Nicholson is a Florida wine dealer whose business is going broke, whose wife wants to leave him, and whose stepson hates him. He hooks up with a tubercular British exile to steal a million-dollar diamond necklace. Bob Rafelson worked with Nicholson on Five Easy Pieces, The King of Marvin Gardens and The Postman Always Rings Twice. This is a return to the tone of their best work; all the major characters are villains or victims. (...) I like movies like this: I like the way the actors are forced to commit to them, to work without a net. When Rafelson and Nicholson find the right material, it must be a relief for them to fall back into what they know so well how to do, to handle hard scenes like easy pieces. (Roger Ebert)
