If you're a fan of heist movies and crime comedies, then Riff Raff should be on your radar. Featuring the dynamic duo of Jennifer Coolidge and Gabrielle Union, this film has already garnered considerable attention and it's not hard to see why. Coolidge has been lighting up the screen with her role in The White Lotus, while Union has been earning critical praise for her performances in Truth Be Told and The Inspection. With these two talents leading the cast, Riff Raff is sure to be a hit.

But there's more to this production than just its stars. Award-winning filmmaker Dito Montiel is directing the movie, and Succession's Brian Cox and Kung Fu Panda 4's Dustin Hoffman are also part of the cast. With this much talent involved, it's clear that Riff Raff is aiming big.

The film's plot centers around a former criminal whose life is thrown into disarray when his old family shows up for a long-awaited reckoning. While we're still in the dark about which characters the actors will be playing, producer Marc Goldberg assures us that the film will be "witty and entertaining." It's a classic crime caper, but with a tongue-in-cheek twist that's sure to keep audiences engaged. Fans are already buzzing with anticipation for Riff Raff. On social media, one excited moviegoer declared, "I can feel my life about to change," while another quipped, "Imagining these two acting opposite each other is sending me into hysterics." Clearly, the prospect of seeing Coolidge and Union share the screen together has struck a nerve.

For those who can't wait for Riff Raff's release, there are other options to tide you over. Coolidge can currently be seen in Netflix's comedy-horror We Have a Ghost, while Union stars in the upcoming rom-com The Perfect Find. But make sure to mark your calendars for Riff Raff; with its all-star cast and talented crew, it's shaping up to be one of the most exciting movies of the year.
