How do I create an instance of NSDictionary containing the contents of the plist?

I thought the code I wrote was already doing that, but I am getting an error.

plist.swift
import Foundation

// Add your code below
        if let plistPath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("CrazyInformation.plist", ofType: String) {
            let crazyInformation = NSDictionary(contentsOfFile: plistPath)
        }

Hi, remember don't add plist extension

if let plistPath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("CrazyInformation", ofType: "plist") {
     let currentCrazyInformation = NSDictionary(contentsOfFile: plistPath)
}
