Tossin’ It Out There: Who’s YOUR Favorite Movie Thief?

the-bling-ring-trailerI had a chance to check out “The Bling Ring” the other day (review pending), Sofia Coppola’s movie about a young gang of celeb obsessed thieves, and it put robbing and thieving on the brain.

Who’s your favorite thief in film? Do you go high-minded and say Robin Hood? Or do you head for a slick pro like Neil McCauley? How about the Reservoir Dogs gang? How about a petty thief like Warren from Empire Records, LOL, or someone classic like Cary Grant’s John Robie?

From the common crook to big time embezzlement, movies about stealing and robbing have been made again and again and again. From “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” to “The Great Train Robbery” to “Goodfellas” to the “Oceans” series, they never seem to tire of making movies about people who steal.

So who’s YOUR favorite thief?

Let us hear it!
