COMEDY

Donal Logue, a rough stone slab of a man, plays Eugene Gurkin, a Manhattan janitor whose destiny changes when he sees an E! report on Mick Jagger’s dream apartment on Central Park West. The janitor asks himself, Why not break into Jagger’s place? Will Mick even miss a few crumbs of his wealth? Logue is an actor who seems to have just shuffled in from real life—just got out of bed, maybe the wrong side—and happened to cross the camera’s path, and he makes this sad man’s dream seem, if not sensible, certainly not criminal. You wouldn’t want Mick to be robbed, no, but you don’t want Eugene to fail, either. He assembles an enthusiastic, completely inexperienced team, including a waitress (Sofia Vergara), a security guard (Kevin Michael Richardson) and a cabbie (Maz Jobrani). It’s something like a blue-collar Ocean’s Eleven. Of the large, nicely peppered cast, I especially like Vergara, who has some of the vamping yumminess of a Catherine Zeta-Jones.
