Welcome to Collinwood (also known as The Pride of the East Side) is a 2002 American crime comedy film about five small-time criminals, from the Collinwood neighborhood of Cleveland, who try to organize one last big job. The story is a remake of the 1958 Italian film I soliti ignoti by Mario Monicelli.
The film was written and directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.

Cosimo (Luis Guzman) and Toto (Michael Jeter) attempt to steal a car and Cosimo gets caught. In jail, he meets an old man who tells him about a Bellini - a perfect heist -- which he cannot pull off because of his jail sentence. Cosimo wants his girlfriend/fiancée, Rosalind (Patricia Clarkson), to find a "Mullinski" (a first time crook to take the fall for his crime of grand theft auto) so that he can get out of jail and pull off this Bellini. After talking to Toto, Basil (Andrew Davoli), Leon (Isaiah Washington), and Pero (Sam Rockwell) - and telling them the basics of the "Bellini" in the process - Pero is paid $16,000 to confess to Cosimo's crime. In jail, he gets Cosimo to tell him what the Bellini is, and then lets him know that his sentence was suspended so that he walks out a free man, leaving Cosimo to rot in jail. When he gets home, Pero is confronted by Cosimo's girlfriend, Rosalind, and some of the other people she asked to take the fall for Cosimo, including: Riley, whose wife is in jail and he to take care of his baby (or get $1000 to pay her fine), Leon, and Toto. Pero tells them he used the money to pay off his debts, but reveals the Bellini.
