Logan Lucky

First slide

A merry band of mismatched misfits from West Virginia turn to crime in the hope of a better life beyond the trailer park in this zany heist caper, directed by Steven Soderbergh. A coal miner (Channing Tatum), desperate for money after losing his job, enlists his one-armed bartender brother (Adam Driver) and sassy beautician sister (Riley Keough) to rob a racetrack. They spring a demolition expert (Daniel Craig) from prison for the day and, with his dimwit brothers (Jack Quaid and Brian Gleeson) in tow, try to evade a nosy FBI agent (Hilary Swank). The ensuing romp is an amusing bit of fluff, a tasty confection that does not linger long in the memory. Possibly acceptable for mature teens.

Watch out for: Drug references and occasional profane and crude language.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13
