The Maiden Heist (2009) PG13 - 3 Stars

Morgan Freeman is great in just about anything he does. Here, he teams up with Christopher Walken and George Macy playing three aging security guards, obsessed with the art they've been guarding for years. Macy is hilarious and I especially loved the editing of their mock-up plans. It's a cute little movie.

Charles (Morgan Freeman), Roger (Christopher Walken), and George (William H. Macy), all are guards in the towns local museum. Each spend countless hours a day daydreaming over their favorite pieces. When they find out the museum will be moving their exhibits to Copenhagen, these three temporary thieves start plotting a way to stop this obstrocity. They make replicas of each of their favorite items hoping to replace them for the originals with no one the wiser.
