* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: Despite all their blunders, the heist ends as though it were without a hitch.]] ** [[spoiler: Perhaps most impressively, Roger being able to talk a suspicious security guard out of taking the crate with George in it.]] * CrowningMomentOfFunny: Roger's fantasy in the very beginning. Made more hilarious in that his foes are armed with fully-automatic weapons and all he has is a handgun, yet he still maintains one shot per kill. ** Any time George takes his clothes off. ---> '''Rose''': Roger...is ''this'' the surprise? ** The rappel practice, most especially Roger's turn. ---> '''Roger''': [Tilting straight back] I think my hands are slipping. ---> '''George''': Which one? ---> '''Roger''': Both of them. * CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: [[spoiler: Roger learns to live without the painting (after he gets it, of course), and falls in love with his wife again.]]

Roger (Walken) is a member of the security team of a prominent art museum, though much of the time his attentions are focused solely on one painting: "The Lonely Maiden". His obsession is such that it affects his relationship with his wife, Rose (Gay-Harden). Charles (Freeman) works in guest relations and has a similar fascination with another painting, and George (Macy) is a night watchman who is perhaps too familiar with a particular statue. When they hear that their exhibits are due to be shipped off to a museum in Denmark, they team up to keep it from happening. After numerous canned plans, they decide to steal the paintings ''during the move'' and switch forgeries in their place.[[HilarityEnsues Hilarity ensues.]]

* AccentuatetheNegative: When the three have collected their forgeries, each one knows that they aren't perfect despite their flawless appearance. George is the first to realize that it's because they're so obsessed with their individual pieces that they just ''know'' something is amiss; it has nothing to do with their quality at all.
