      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Con man meets the mob. Violent, grown-up tale. Rated: 3/5 Dec 22, 2010 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com There are maybe two scenes in the movie where I didn't think all of Burns' lesser qualities were in evidence, and as a character that appears in almost every scene to only have two where I didn't dislike him heavily, that's a bad thing. Rated: 2/4 Apr 17, 2004 Full Review Joel Siegel Good Morning America Dustin Hoffman steals the film. Rated: B Feb 7, 2020 Full Review Mark Steyn The Spectator It's the obsession with style that kills this movie. Not that having an obsession with it is the same as having it. Feb 3, 2018 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews A lazy, paint-by-numbers thriller... Rated: 1.5/4 Nov 18, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I didn’t care for it despite the colorful cast Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/25/23 Full Review Kyle M While it's an ordinary crime film with a deft hand as the filmmaker wants to pull of the unexpected complicating turns that builds up with a twisted hidden agenda (akin to practicing an underdog story's capable score), it's the beneficially well-casted players that signifies the picture with their captivating charm functioning dynamically. Structurally sound, anyone could pull off the given prompt aside from the inspired direction under contributing fun by genre practice expressing one's skills, the committed performative energy is the uniqueness behind its independence's defined experience, with Dustin Hoffman's corruption being the particularity that brought the film under the watchlist radar, resulting it as worthwhile despite mixed similarities derived from other cinematic hits. (B) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Michael S I love a good conman caper, but this falls way short because of the script. Didn't like the narration. Didn't like the fact that the narrator is speaking after his death (or is he?). Didn't like all the cutesy nicknames ("The King," "Tommy Suits"). Didn't like the forced banter. Didn't like the underuse of the great Robert Forster. And all of the ultimate switcheroos were sadly predictable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Malak H Watched several times and still enjoy it. One of the best well set Heist movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Andre G A bunch of con artists try to pull one over on to many people. You try to con the mob then your in trouble. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/09/23 Full Review wayne d This was a very entertaining and interesting movie about a look inside the confidence game. The psychological techniques used to gain peoples trust are very enlightening and interesting. Dustin Hoffman is great as a pervy racketeer/businessman. Ed Byrnes and the rest of the cast play their parts well also. The plot holds your interest and the ending surprises you. Even after you know what happens I found it worth seeing again.
