WATCH: Jennifer Aniston is Kidnapped in ‘Life of Crime’ Trailer

life of crime Toronto Review

In the trailer for her new caper film “Life of Crime,” Jennifer Aniston’s character Mickey Dawson is kidnapped and held for ransom — but her cheating husband doesn’t exactly want her back.

Based on the 1978 Elmore Leonard novel “The Switch,” the crime comedy also stars John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (a.k.a Mos Def), who play Mickey’s kidnappers, and Tim Robbins as her unfaithful husband. The cast also includes Isla Fisher, who plays Robbins’ character’s mistress, and Will Forte.

“You tell him he’s never going to see his wife again. He doesn’t want to see his wife again,” Fisher’s character says in the trailer. “You just saved him a hundred grand a year in alimony.”

“Life of Crime” premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Fest and hits theaters Aug. 29.

    indeed it is a remake of Ruthless People–AND we know that Bette Midler and Danny Devito are a whole lot funnier-save the $50 for the movie theater and watch it on netflix or something cause Ruthless is a classic
