★A retired master car thief must return to his old ways, reassemble his crew and steal 50 specific cars in one night to save his brother’s life. The action is fast-paced but the story borders on stupid. Even with a well-credentialed cast ( Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Robert Duvall), it putters along like an old jalopy. Out of gas. Christian, Raymond, Antoine, Zac and Yvan (the C.R.A.Z.Y. of the title) are the five sons of Gervais Beaulieu ( Michel Cote), family man and devoted Patsy Cline fan in this off-centre Canadian comedy. Zac ( Marc-andre Grondin) is the problem child, who is disappointed when he gets a hockey table for Christmas, having hoped for a pram. Hilarious and cringe-inducing. Writer-director Sally Potter’s response to the way Muslims were “demonised” in the wake of 9/11 is written almost entirely in iambic pentameter. Excellent Joan Allen is a British scientist in a loveless marriage with smarmy politician Anthony ( Sam Neill) but meets a Lebanese doctor ( Simon Abkarian) working as a chef in London. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Ridley Scott were responsible for this powerful film about an elite US force that staged a “snatch and grab” raid on a building in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1993. To say the mission failed is a gross understatement. The consequences were horrific. Josh Hartnett, Ewan Mcgregor, Jason Isaacs and Eric Bana star.
