Written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the screenwriting team behind “The Hangover,” and directed by Rob Minkoff, whose credits include “The Lion King” and “Stuart Little,” “Flypaper” has enough twists and surprises to remain interesting in a closed-room, Agatha Christie kind of way. But it’s never quite as clever or as hip as it thinks it is.
Normally, heist movies are hilarious only in an ironic way. This heist movie pulled off the "comedy" thing really well. Well worth the 3 hour wait for tickets. I hope it comes out in normal-people theaters soon.
