Clever shell-game drama about an obsessive-compulsive small-time con artist (Nicolas Cage) whose neurotically routine life unravels when he learns he has a teen-age daughter (Alison Lohman) with a gift for the grift, complicating a potentially lucrative scheme to fleece a heavy-hitting millionaire. Full of triple-dealings and exploiting viewers' fascination for confidence games, the film, directed by Ridley Scott, while morally glossing over its protagonist's dishonest actions, ultimately imparts a message that crime burns you in the end. A benign attitude toward larceny, some violence, a scene in a strip club with partial nudity, an instance of fleeting rear nudity and rough language, as well as recurring crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
