  • "Meet Roy (Nicolas Cage) and his prot g Frank (Sam Rockwell), a couple of small-time con artists (aka Matchstick Men) who are on the verge of their most lucrative swindle. Roy's private life, however, is not so successful. An obsessive-compulsive agoraphobe (and chain-smoker) with no personal relationships to call his own... until he learns he has a 14-year old daughter Angela (Alison Lohman). Now, Angela wants in on the partnership but that could seriously jeopardize Roy's peace of mind, not to mention his whole way of life. Ridley Scott's grifting comedy won't leave you feeling conned."
  • "If there is a sucker born every minute, these guys will work the delivery room. Two con men plan to flimflam a flimflammer out of big-time dough. They have a new partner to help them too: a long-absent daughter, who is eager to learn the art of the con. Just when you think you have it figured out you don't."
