With all the Hollywood remakes of French pop movies floating around live and on tape these days - "Three Fugitives," "Cousins," "Three Men and a Baby" - you might want to catch the real McQuoi, subtitles and all. There is one in town for the next week at the Roxy that has all the elements. "Bandits" is a little character study/romance/mystery concoction featuring people who shrug, smoke cigarettes dangling from the lip and eat snails and rabbit in fancy restaurants. It's a little talky by American standards, but amusing.

The armed robber ordered three victims to the ground and bragged that he had already killed three men, so "one more won't hurt. " The man then pumped a bullet into the back of Sammy Cedano, 30, of Camden, killing him at 9th and Somerset Streets, shortly after midnight on July 7, said Assistant District Attorney Paul Laughlin. One of the surviving victims, William Cintron, said he was lying next to Cedano when the fatal shot was fired, and tried to get up and run. He said the killer's accomplice, James Lamb, 15, of Seltzer Street near 13th, then shot him in the back.

A ski-masked holdup team made a whopper of a mistake when they entered a packed Burger King in South Philadelphia last Dec. 20. They ended up in the wrong kind of sandwich - caught between two off-duty cops who were there as customers. One was arrested immediately, a second was caught later. The third man is still on the lam. Yesterday, Common Pleas Judge William J. Mazzola convicted Matthew Maxwell, 19, a former employee of a McDonald's restaurant, of robbery, aggravated assault and conspiracy charges.

It was like a stagecoach stickup at sundown - in North Philadelphia. The coach - SEPTA's Route 33 bus - was swinging north along 21st Street with about 30 passengers aboard around 5:30 p.m. yesterday. Driver James Dye, 38, pulled up to the Dauphin Street stop and the doors swung open to more riders - and two or three bandits, police said. One man pulled out a revolver and pressed it to the back of Dye's head, said Detective Thomas Gaylord of the North Central Detective Division.

Not long ago, Rockledge became Raccoontown after sundown. Residents would report seeing groups of three to six of the pesty noctural creatures nonchalantly rummaging through garbage, crouching under cars and porches, attached to trees or casually standing on street corners and sidewalks. Police also would report seeing up to 30 raccoons as they and the raccoons made their respective evening rounds. After hearing a year's worth of complaints from irate, frustrated residents about the raccoons' garbage can tipping and late-night antics, the Rockledge Borough Council sprang into action in October.

JOSEPHINE has been decorating her porch in South Philly for 40 years. But it's taken some convincing from her family to make it to year 41 - having your decorations stolen twice in 11 months can do that to a homeowner. "I like decorating, and everyone tells me it looks good," said Josephine, whose last name is being withheld at her request. "I can't understand why someone would do this. " Late Thursday, some punk swiped the "scary butler" doll that Josephine had put outside her home on Fitzgerald Street near 11th, police said.

The name Applied Mechanics sounds pretty clinical for a local theater collective that's touched by the deepest of passions, artistic and political. To an extent, though, Applied Mechanics' methods are as calculated and focused as they are free and communal, as evidenced by their newest theater piece, the Pussy Riot-inspired We Are Bandits , a study of protests, parties, and those who interact with both. Even better, the femme-centric company states that "every audience member has a backstage pass" during the live musical Bandits , which "in the spirit of radical democracy . . .. will be free of charge" during its run starting Friday at Asian Arts Initiative on Vine Street.

HERE'S A TIP for would-be bandits: Don't let Mom watch footage of you committing the crime. She's likely to hand you over to police, as one 14-year-old boy learned the hard way yesterday. Police say the teen, whose name isn't being released because he's a juvenile, was escorted to 19th District headquarters after his mom recognized him terrorizing a Wynnefield beauty-supply store on surveillance-camera footage. "We definitely say kudos to Mom for doing this," said Lt. John Stanford, a police spokesman.

MOST ROBBERIES follow a common model: Get the goods and get out. But a trio of punks took their heist to the next level early Monday, when they posed as workers for three hours at a Hess gas station in Eastwick - they even gave discounts on candy, cigarettes and lottery tickets to the customers they "served," pocketing the cash from the sales. "I've been doing this for 23 years; this is the first time I recall an incident like this," Lt. John Walker, of Southwest Detectives, said.

CURIOUS AS to how the bandits in Thursday's armored-car heist pulled it off so easily? Experience, at least according to a law-enforcement source close to the investigation. The suspects in that robbery, which occurred about 9 a.m. in the parking lot of the TD Bank on Frankford Avenue near Magee in Mayfair, are the "same guys" who allegedly ripped off another armored car in October, according to that source. In that earlier heist, three men wearing "Scream" masks made off with $310,000 from a Wells Fargo branch on Frankford Avenue near Rhawn Street, about 2 miles away from Thursday's incident.

According to officials, the armed bandit used a "reusable green and orange shopping bag with a 'peace' symbol on it" when he robbed the First Priority Bank branch at 10 Sentry Parkway, Blue Bell, Thursday morning. The thief entered the bank, displayed a semiautomatic handgun, and demanded money before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A THIEF IN Northwest Philadelphia is apparently a student of the Bart Simpson school of burglary. Police report that an man spent about 45 minutes Wednesday morning using a slingshot in an attempt to break into the Palm Tree Market on Cresson Street near Levering in Manayunk. Surveillance footage released yesterday shows the Dennis the Menace wannabe cocking his weapon in the vestibule in front of the store. It took him nearly an hour, but the less-than-crackshot eventually forced his way inside at roughly 5 a.m., after cracking a pane in the market's front door.

TIRED OF those pesky signs posted to utility poles offering to buy your home, junk and even your diabetic test strips? Yesterday, Councilman Bobby Henon introduced a bill that would double the fine for posting bandit signs to $150. Under the proposal, advertisers and the person posting the sign would be liable. The courts could impose a separate $1,000 fine for each illegal sign and up to $2,000 for subsequent offenses. Failure to pay the fines could result in the revocation of a business-privilege license.
