Not quite as bad as other reviews suggest but extremely disappointing.
There's a great script here struggling to get out. Alas, it fails to even open the door.
Writer/director! When will producers learn!? I'm guessing Never so we continue to be plagued by these half-a**ed screenplays that desperately need a 2nd or 3rd eye to curb the writer's sense of brilliance! (That's irony for our American friends.)
Let's start with the title. It's not a movie about a con. Jesus! C'mon guys, at least get the terminology right. It's more a sort of comedy caper/heist movie, but it's not even that.
The worst character by far is Tim Roth's Peter. No doubt Roth enjoyed playing him although it would be as challenging as waking up in the morning. He's so lacking in couth it's absolutely impossible to imagine he could ever have gotten involved with Alice Eve or Uma Thurman, zany and cracked though their characters may be.
Maggie Q must have had a similar challenge with her character.
Highlight of the movie is Stephen Fry playing, well, Stephen Fry's "Dear boy" character, but he does it so naturally and so well. Although not a major character he does help redeem it from the pit.
It's not totally unwatchable. Well, if you're looking for a good plot or well-defined characters or well, anything, then it is...
Okay, it has good production values and a stellar cast but they're simply wasted, wasted, wasted.
I didn't think it was quite as bad as other reviews suggest which I find hard to believe! But it is extremely disappointing.
