All ingredients of a good movie are here and with great results.

Good story and script, actors at their best, Ridley scott directing and Robert Zemeckis as Exec. Producer deliver a very enjoyable film.
This Comedy-Drama deals with small con men and thus reminds of other productions such as Kudos' HUSTLE or even David Mamet's House of Games, if not as dark.

For those of you who find interest in commentary tracks, there's a very rewarding one available here.
It's a highly informative carefully edited single track of intertwined seperate recordings from Director Ridley Scott and the writers Nicholas & Ted Griffin.

Other extras include a theatrical trailer and a highly interesting 71 minutes Making Of documentary divided to 3 parts: Pre-Production,Production and Post Production.

Both the main feature and the Documentary have English subtitles.

There seem to be different DVD editions, as mine does not have the WB Archive Collection logo, and only Italian audio and subtitles along English, unlike the above Product Description.

Overall a very good movie presented in an excellent DVD box set with great added value.

Nic Cage plays a Con man who has Obsessive Compulsive disorder and if that's not bad enough meets a young girl who claims to be his daughter??I particularly like this movie,bit of a sleeper movie flop and forgotten when it came out,but well worthy to be described as,similar to Jack Nicholsons,As Good As It Gets,but even more fun!!Nic Cage really does the OCD conman well,how do I know,coz I was an OCD conman,probably why I can identify with his character.Sam Rockwell is on hand as his partner in Cons.Lots to be had here,sentimentality,cons and comedy,i recommend this highly....

Simply brilliant all the way through. Actually it gets better and better. Or worse, depending on how you look at it. Top acting from key cast.

This film has good reviews but not being a fan of Cage I had never bothered to watch it. Picked it up for a penny on Amazon and it was a very good investment. Cage is perfect for the quirky twitchy characterand Sam Rockwell gives another solid performance. Depending on how quicky you see the con might decide how you rate this film BUT its defo worth a watch.

This film is alright, but not amazing. Nick overacts just a bit too much for me!

I liked this movie, and thought Nick Cage did a fine acting job as he usually does. the story is light hearted, and has a surprising ending, with moral overtones.The good guy loses the money but gets the girl and becomes fulfilled. Liked it.
