Plot: When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers. Mickey Dawson, the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson, is kidnapped by two common criminal, who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

Life Of Crime Review - Life Of CrimeSep 6, 2014NewsLife of Crime has a bemused Jennifer Aniston playing a "trophy wife" who is losing some of her sheen, a smug Tim Robbins playing her philandering husband who has been siphoning off quite an interesting nest egg in the Bahamas. Enter the brilliant Mos Def and John Hawkins two crooks with a plan of kidnapping the wife for a million bucks. They may not have anticipated the series of events that are to come; for surprise ! surprise! the smarmy husband would rather stay with the mistress who he wants to upgrade to the Missus. Yes, I know RUTHLESS PEOPLE Redux , right?  Tim Robbin's character may be accused of many things, being uncounth, an alocholic, distant father but he does have an eye for the ladies. If Aniston's Mickey reveals her wit and pluck over time, Isla Fiasher playing the unruffled Melanie (the woh in Pati, Patni and Woh) is straight up sparkles. She out manouvers the thugs two. I wish we saw more of Isla Fisher for she just lights up the screen. However, there has to be a special mention of  MArk Boone Jr. who plays Richard--he provides the guns and the hideout for the kidnapping. But his character is also a strange, strange Nazi sympathiser, apparently his father fought in WW2 but he never answers the question "which side", he is loathsome as he watches over Mickey...in a movie where everyone is so manila , I am glad they had Isla Fisher and Boone.  Aneela Zeb Babar Life Of Crime Review - Life Of Crime Sep 6, 2014
