Edward Burns is a grifter and when one of his con jobs goes bad, he’s indebted to Dustin Hoffman and Andy Garcia.

That isn’t true what I wrote up there about Andy Garcia. He’s in the movie, but I’m guessing I either couldn’t read or the website wasn’t very clear about the plot of the movie.

I enjoyed watching this movie, but it wasn’t outstanding. They show you one of the con jobs right away, so then from that point on, you really do not trust anyone in the movie or anything that you are seeing. You are waiting for twists and turns and various cons going on. Of course, if the plot of the movie is about cons, then you expect that.

It would have been nice to be surprised by the twists, but it was still entertaining to watch the movie since the all the actors were good. Dustin Hoffman was super creepy and I wanted to punch him for the way he chewed his gum. Andy Garcia was super duper hairy but he was really good too.
