One of my favorite Cage movies. Love it.
Great beginning and end with some dry parts in the middle. Definitely an underrated gem
Nicky Cage definitely has a mental disorder, he's convincing
Cage does an amazing job, making you feel uncomfortable with him instead of for him. Rockwell is as amazing as ever. Both con artists.
Good comedy movie, good script and acting with smart comedy moments. Worth a watch
What a performance by Nicolas Cage, wow.
Plain and simple amazing screenplay and execution behind and in front of the camera.
Clever dialogue and plot. Well acted by Cage and Rockwell. Rewatchable.
A criminally underrated film with heart and a manically amazing performance (as usual) from Nicolas Cage
I love Nic Cage & Sam Rockwell so this film, to me, is very well-acted. You have to suspend your disbelief and when you do, it's great.
