Tic-prone Nicolas Cage and Sam Rockwell are con men planning their next big score when Cage’s daughter shows up out of nowhere.

It is a lighthearted movie. Nicolas Cage is super cool. His obsessive compulsive tics were hilarious. Sam Rockwell should have been in the movie more but he was cool too. The daughter was great and passed as a 14-year-old. I think she’s like 21 or 23 in real life.

When I saw the preview, I thought I could figure out the twist of the movie but it wasn’t what I thought. I didn’t expect it. I really enjoyed the movie. Highly recommended fun movie.

Rating: B+
