Smartly crafted scam movie about a veteran con man (John C. Reilly) who takes a young street hustler (Diego Luna) under his wing in order to swindle a wealthy collector (Peter Mullan) into buying a forged, extremely rare currency note. Director Gregory Jacobs' beat-for-beat remake of the 2002 Argentinian film "Nine Queens" fails to match the sharpness of the original, but its clever shell-game narrative still provides enough double-dealing plot twists to keep viewers guessing. However, the movie follows the original's morally muddy lead in suggesting that duplicity pays off. An implied sexual encounter and recurring rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
