MPAA Rating: R
EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Apr 25, 2003; Rated: R; Length: 97 Minutes; Genre: Mystery and Thriller; With: Ed Burns and Dustin Hoffman; Distributor: Lions Gate Films

It's riddled with the tin-rattle cuteness of ersatz film-noir dialogue, but once you get past that, this con caper has a shell-game plot that's alive with organic trickery. Edward Burns is in prime form as a grifter who walks a thin line between jerkitude and savoir faire.
