5.0 out of 5 stars Now You See Him... Now You Don't 21 Aug 2003
"Catch Me if You Can" is a smart and occasionally funny film that shows you that sometimes the most outrageous stories are the ones that are true. Yes, this was inspired by a true story. How close to the facts it stayed is unknown to me, but what is known is that this was a film that kept me intrigued and in awe from start to finish.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays Frank Abagnale Jr.; a young and bright kid who can con with the best of them. How he got there is that he has learned from the best, his father. Things get shaky when his parents are undergoing investigations from the IRS and his mother wants to get a divorce. Not knowing what else to do, Frank runs away and tries his best to make it on his own by doing what he does best: con. Posing in many different occupations such as an airline co-pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer triggers a cat/mouse chase conducted by FBI agent Carl Hanratty (Hanks). The movie keeps your attention throughout and leaves you unsure of what's going to happen next.
I loved everything about this movie. It was ten times better than I thought it would've been, mainly because the trailers do mislead you (as many have said) into thinking that you're going to be seeing a whacky chase comedy with all sorts of shenanigans and mishaps. Well, yes it is a funny movie at times, but I don't think I would really label it as a comedy. A lot of the things that happen in the film are actually heartbreaking and sad. So be aware of that when you decide to buy a ticket for this one.
The performances were more than ingenious. Tom Hanks is as great as ever and really takes his role to the limit while DiCaprio also proves to be a fabulous actor as well, and also is able to show us there is life after "Titanic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leo's best role yet 16 Oct 2004
Catch Me If You Can tells the incredible true story of a teenage runaway who finds himself alone in the big city and in need of a job. He uses his wit and creativity to live the good life, successfully posing as an airline pilot, physician, and lawyer, and cashing millions of dollars in bad checks, all before he is 18 years old!
Leonardo DiCaprio is utterly convincing as teenager Frank Abagnale, Jr. His considerable poise and confidence charm us immediately. Tom Hanks plays the stalwart FBI agent who chases Frank for years, forming an odd bond with him. Christopher Walken plays Frank's troubled father in his typically eerie style. There are many surprises and some chuckles along the way. This is a very enjoyable film about an amazingly resourceful young man. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nearly a 5* Movie! 12 Nov 2003
Catch Me If You Can is a great movie. I would easily give it 5 stars, but it is not quite there, though very nearly.
Steven Spielberg directs this incredible-but-true story of the young life of Frank Abagnale Jr. Following the traumatic divorce of his beloved parents (Christopher Walken and Nathalie Baye) in the 1960s, at age sixteen Abagnale (Leonardo DiCaprio) goes AWOL, becoming a prodigious cheque forger and impersonator of a Pan-Am pilot, a doctor and lawyer. Soon he has the FBI fraud squad on his trail, in particular dogged agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks), who carries on a game of cat-and-mouse with Abagnale over a few years.
You will not be disappointed if you buy this movie. The special features on the double disc dvd are very good, and gives a great insight into the making of the film, and an interview with the real man, Frank Abagnale.

By A Customer
The New YorkTimes loved this movie, and it is easy to see why. There is nothing pretentious or hyped about it. A great script, some sparkling dialogue, a wry, witty performance from Loenardo Di Caprio, the usual reliable turn from Tom Hanks, and a surprising, intriguing performance from Christopher Walken as Leo's dad. At the end of the movie Leo/Frank even begins to look like his father (I think it's the hair . . . ). The glamour of the 1960s, and especially of the airlines of the times, when to be a pilot for PanAm was to be the icon of style and success, is superbly conveyed. John Williams' score is also a delight, so 60s yet at the same time almost like up-to-the-minute John Adams or Steve Reich at their minimalist best. I bought the CD and have played it umpteen times. One of the most enjoyable movies I've seen in a while . . . and SO much better than Leonardo's last outing in the appalling "Gangs of New York".

4.0 out of 5 stars all-round good movie 29 Aug 2003
By "dw-uk"
If you enjoy a film with a good story line, one that you have to follow into each and every twist and turn, this is definately one of the best for a while. However, if you're looking for multi-million dolar special effects, unbelievable stunts and action, look elsewhere.
This film is about people, which is what, I think, makes it so appealing. And to think that it was based on a true story seems unreal. You are drawn in the moment the film starts, and from then on, i was hooked and didn't want to miss any of it. And as the plot deepens, your mind goes into over drive trying to figure out how it can all end?? It does end (eventually!), and its a pleasent surprise. I won't say any more than that because knowing the ending could easily ruin the whole film!
There is nothing in particular that stands out to entitle to movie to a prestigous 5-star review, but also, there is nothing bad to bring it lower than the 4 stars i've awarded.
It isn't a comedy, nor is it a serious drama. It's a decent, all-round good movie. Definately worth buying.
