A remake of the 1969 madcap comedy starring Ryan O'Neal, based on the novel by Elmore Leonard and set in the lush tropical surroundings of Hawaii. Jack Ryan (Owen Wilson) is a small-time thief and conman who is determined to leave his life of crime behind him. But then he meets surfer-girl femme fatale Nancy (Sara Foster), who enlists his help in stealing $200,000 from her real estate tycoon boyfriend - Jack's former boss, Ray Ritchie (Gary Sinise). Along the way, Jack encounters a string of shady characters (played by Morgan Freeman, Bebe Neuwirth, and Charlie Sheen among others), and eventually finds himself at a moral crossroads where he must choose between the money, the girl... or the honourable path.

I really don't agree with all the negative things that people say about this film, I love to watch it whenever my spirits need lifting, mostly on cold, damp evenings. I am simply awestruck by the cinematography alone, Hawaii's breathtaking scenery filmed in cinemascope from helicopters, and those close-ups of wicked waves that surfers worship is amazing to say the least! Wait, there's more ; a lorry load of stars have found their way into this tale, including the incredibly beautiful Sara Foster, who walks around a lot on paradise-like beaches in nothing but a skin-tight bikini... People, who, like myself, don't always need something deep and intellectual, but like a good yarn that's acted out in a hang-loose, aloha style, by actors who are being paid to be on holiday, will find this DVD very satisfying indeed. Escapism at its best.

This is a very clever film that will throw your mind all over the place. With more Twists than a mountain road and with charecters seemingly changing the views and positions faster than a politician it at moments becomes hard to keep track off. But the film pulls this off very well and ends with more than one suprise. Owen Wilson is up to his usual tricks with the supporting cast all pulling much more than their weight and Morgan Freeman shines as the judge who everyone respects but knows mor than he lets on. Well worth the money and the time to watch.

Format: DVD
I really didn't expect a lot from this movie - but it did feature Morgan Freeman, the greatest actor working today, as well as the scantily-clad Sara Foster, so I said what the heck. Actually, the movie really isn't that bad. Sure, it's a little silly and predictably unpredictable (you know how these comic con game movies are), it sometimes seems as if the actors are making things up as they go along, and the ending leaves much to be desired, but - and I hate to admit this - Owen Wilson is pretty darn funny, the Hawaiian setting is gorgeous, there's no shortage of bikini-clad ladies, and the storyline is enough to keep you interested. You also have all these weird cameo appearances by celebrities such as Gary Sinise, Willie Nelson, Harry Dean Stanton, and Bebe Neuwirth - they don't really add to the movie, but you're always wondering what famous person will show up next.
I don't think I need to explain how these con game movies work, not after all of the con game movies Hollywood has sent our way in recent years. You've got your con, then you've got your hidden "conspiracy" of con men and women making things more complicated, and then you have an ending that flies off in another direction altogether without adequately explaining what just happened. Owen Wilson plays Jack Ryan, a rather typical roustabout who has made his way to Hawaii. There's an unfortunate incident involving his supervisor's head and a baseball bat, but oddly enough, the district judge Walter Crewes (Morgan Freeman) gives him a job, and it's not long before he is hanging out with Nancy Hayes (Sara Foster), the young mistress of Jack's now-former boss Ray Ritchie (Gary Sinise).

Format: DVD
This could have been a first rate film especially with the cast it had, Owen Wilson (very cute) Morgan Freeman (not so cute but very good) and even Vinnie Jones (who got beaten up!!!!). However I have to say that when Vinnie got clocked in the jaw with a baseball bat, yeh, that was the best bit! The story they could have had with the idea of playing the long con in Hawaii would have been amazing. The script was terrible and half of the actors looked like they'd only just put them down. Vinnie Jones and the leading Lady Sara Foster were good but the rest of the cast let them down. A shame because it was Sara's first film. Talent scouts please pick up on her but give the rest of the cast alongside the movie a miss....
