John C. Reilly plays a con artist who hatches an elaborate scheme to make big bucks. This is a remake of the Argentine thriller "Nine Queens." Diego Luna and Maggie Gyllenhaal also star.
John C. Reilly does an outstanding job of acting in this movie. He was great in Chicago, but this role shows he can carry a movie. This is one of the best con movies I have seen as rare currency is used as the valuable commodity. Young Diego Luna plays a great accomplice to the two time loser John C. Reilly.
