'The Best and the Brightest' shooting derailed by robbery

Boyds was supposed to host a movie crew -- but then the store became a crime scene.

Thursday was Day One of shooting for The Best and the Brightest, a comedy starring Neil Patrick Harris and Bonnie Somerville as humble parents trying to get their child into a posh Manhattan private kindergarten.

Boyds -- not your local Boyds, the only Boyds -- was set up to host filming. But shortly before, the place was hit by smash-and-grab thieves.

It's not clear when they'll be back at 1818 Chestnut St.
