In STEAL BIG, STEAL LITTLE, identical twin brothers are at war over forty thousand acres of prime California real estate bequeathed to one of the brothers by their adoptive mother. The virtues of family, friendship and honor are in opposition to greed, corruption, materialism, and betrayal in this sentimental tale of how the spirit of kinship prevails. Andy Garcia plays twins Rueben and Robby Martinez, as different as Cain and Abel. They have to “one-up” each other in the struggle to gain control over the land Reuben loves and Robby wants to sell.

Andy Garcia has given stronger performances in other roles. Here, he is a bit self-conscious. Dramatically, the film jumps back and forth from a grainy videotaped interview to the actual events of the story. In the process, the purpose of the video documentary is lost. The fact that Robby eventually comes around morally is almost anti-climatic. We don’t really care that much about these characters by the film’s end. This film attempts to inspire, warm and exhilarate the audience as we rejoice in the success of the little people over the big, but it comes off as just plain hokey — and long! For the same themes in better movies, try THE PRINCESS BRIDE and THE MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR.
