Botched robbery?

Surely they successfully completed the robbery, it was just the disposal of the Minis that was botched.

And the film just leaves you dangling (ha ha), so they might even have got away with that. We don't know what Charlie's great idea is (although admittedly, it doesn't really sound like he's actually got one).

I know what Charlie's idea was... if you look, at the end of the film, everyone's standing in the cabin of the bus - if as many people as possible cram into the driver's cab, then their combined weight might make the bus stable enough for Charlie to (carefully) make his way down to the end of the cabin and start moving the gold back down the bus. Once some of the gold is at the front of the bus, it becomes easier for them to get the rest...
