Ain't no heist film like a comedy heist film parody.

Big Deal on Madonna Street is such a fun film, taking shots at a genre still, really, in its infancy, though lack of source material doesn't hold Mario Monicelli down. It's also been remade a few times, including twice in english, most recently as the Russo brothers' Welcome to Collinwood, a movie that really should have been better than it was.

Anyway! Listen to Lost in Criterion's episode Big Deal on Madonna Street!
