If there's a sucker born every minute, these guys will work the delivery room. Meet Roy and Frank, con men who plan to flimflam a flimflammer out of big-time dough. They have a new partner to help them too: Roy's long-absent 14-year-old daughter, who has entered his life and is eager to learn the art of the con.Just when you think you have it figured out you don't, during this acclaimed comedy thriller directed by Ridley Scott. Nicolas Cage is winningly quirky as Roy, genius at crime and basket case in life because he's an agoraphobe, a germaphobe and suddenly a parent. Sam Rockwell is wily Frank. And Alison Lohman plays the wild child at Roy's door. For fun, suspense and brain-busting twists, nothing's hotter than Matchstick Men.

Definitely a movie worth watching for some entertainment. Based on a story set on conning with the comedy spins in it, its a movie that will keep you hooked to the screen. Loved the story! A notable credit to Nicholas Cage's acting. Bravo!

A different kind of psychological thriller. Great story and fine acting with an awesome twist at the end.

I like Cage, he is one of my favourite actors. A good performance through the movie. I liked the story as well, entertaining and meaningful.

I love Cage. He has done some really dodgy movies but this is not one of them. It shines. Good cast with him and a pretty good storyline. I like the ending. No I won't give it away but it is quite good... Read more
