Obsessive-compulsive con artist Roy Waller (Nicolas Cage) and partner Frank Mercer (Sam Rockwell) make good livings with slick scams in the L.A. area. But when, under his psychiatrist's advice, Waller contacts the 14-year-old daughter (Alison Lohman) he never knew, the precocious teen tries to get to know her quirk-filled dad and take part in his latest scheme, a money-laundering swindle. With Bruce McGill, Bruce Altman; directed by Ridley Scott. 116 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
