Well scripted, well acted and well directed. Great connection between Nic Cage and Alison Lohman with Sam Rockwell being...well, Sam Rockwell!! To me Nicolas Cage is owning the movies he is in, in much... Read morethe same way as Tom Hanks does and Robert de Niro and Al Pacino have done before and makes it all look so easy.

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.
