The world's best art forger (John Travolta) makes a deal with a crime syndicate to get an early release from prison, but in return he must pull off an impossible heist - he must forge a painting by Claude Monet, steal the original from a museum, and replace it with a replica so perfect that no one will notice. He enlists the help of his father (Christopher Plummer) and son (Tye Sheridan) and together they plan the heist of their lives!Written by
At about 14 minutes in, Gramps, Will, and Ray are watching a movie on TV. The film is "D.O.A.", 1949, directed by Rudolph Mate, starring Edmond O'Brien. See more »
Much is made of the Travolta character carefully selecting the perfect antique frame, mixing his own pigments using raw minerals, etc.. None of this has any effect on the plot. Travolta admits he will not create an exact copy, and regardless, the forgery is never inspected. See more »
Hey, Will. What do you say we explore Polynesia, huh? We could go to Fiji. We could go to Tonga. We could go to Marquesas. That's where Gauguin lived. We got time. What do you think?

Saw a trailer for this movie here on IMDb through no fault of my own, and when I got the chance to see it, I did. I got the feeling that this wasn't the biggest movie in history, and it isn't either.
I paint, and I like me a good heist-movie from time to time, and John Travolta is a decent actor, so I gave it a whirl.
Now, this movie isn't super bad, nor is it super good. It's a little under mediocre. The acting is pretty uninspired in some parts, and lacks energy, but it's all over OK. Travolta does an OK job, his charm shines through a little, but not a lot.
The movie has some slight action sprinkled in, actually a teeny bit of violence, but nothing much. It's like, almost exciting, and the heist part is alright. All over it's OK.
I'm not one to talk about plot holes, but there is one here that bothered me a little. All in all the movie takes no chances and is just OK. I was mildly entertained for most of the time.
