Evoking the spirit of some of the greatest film adaptations of Elmore Leonard's novels - Get Shorty. Out Of Sight and Jackie Brown - Life Of Crime is a twisty. Action-filled comedic gem. Jennifer Aniston plays Margaret "Mickey" Dawson. A loving. Slightly naive housewife whose husband. Frank (Tim Robbins). has been embezzling millions for years and keeping the cash in off-shore accounts without her knowledge. Two career criminals. Louis (John Hawkes) and Ordell (yasiin bey). catch wind of his scam and figure if they hold Mickey for ransom. Frank would have no choice but to pay up big. What they don't plan on is that Frank is head over heels for his sex-kitten mistress. Melanie (Isla Fisher). and doesn't want his wife back.
