I watched Burglar. It is very loosely based on the book The Burglar in the Closet by Lawrence Block (the book I just read). I didn’t know there was a movie based on it until I read a comment on goodreads about it. This movie has Whoopi Goldberg, Bobcat Goldthwait, G.W. Bailey, Lesley Ann Warren, James Handy, Elizabeth Ruscio, Vyto Ruginis, and Larry Mintz in it.
Note: Like I said this is very loosely based. The whole book was flipped. Bernie is a man in the books, this movie he is a woman (Whoopi). In the books, Bernie doesn’t have a best friend like this movie. In the book, the dentist was a man. In this movie, the dentist was a woman. The victim in the book was a woman. In this movie, the victim was a man. Frankie dies in the book. Plus the script was a little bit bad.
Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.
In this movie, Bernice is looking for a good job because Ray is bugging her about money. Her jewelry fence suggests a job involving a dentist. So she goes the dentist who says her ex husband stole her jewelry. Bernice ends up taking the job. She gets trapped in the closet and then the man gets killed. Her best friend helps her find out who killed the man. They both find out who did it.
I sorta liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Student.
