Ridley Scott directs the crime comedy Matchstick Men, based on the novel of the same name by Eric Garcia. Neurotic con man Roy (Nicolas Cage) suffers from several emotional problems, including obsessive-compulsive disorder. He and his partner Frank (Sam Rockwell) swindle people out of money by posing as money collectors who promise things like tax refunds, package vacations, and other fabulous prizes (which they never get). Frank wants to pull a really big job, but Roy is too consumed with fear and panic attacks to join him. Only cigarettes and his trusty illegal prescription drugs seem to keep him going. When Roy finds himself in desperate need of more pills, he is forced to see legitimate psychotherapist Dr. Klein (Bruce Altman). Roy ends up talking about his emotional damage from a troubled marriage and divorce, which results in the discovery of a child whom he has never met. Dr. Klein suggests that he spend a weekend with the kid, so in walks teenaged Angela (played by twentysomething Alison Lohman). Reluctant to develop his role as a father, Roy also gets heavily involved in Frank's ambitious swindle.

One of the funniest movies I've seen since paper moon. Allison Lohman is terrific and hot. She makes being bad look good.

I absolutely loved this movie. From Nicholas Cage's hilariously quarky character to the surprize ending, it was terrific. Very well scripted and left you with a smile. The only reason that I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it did drag a bit in places.

Oh,man. This movie was real funny, and I can't believe what happens. This was so crazy, I didn't expect the ending. It's like you got punched in the chest, its so surprising. But it is a very well written script, and exquisite filming. I can't believe how excellent this movie is. It is such a great movie!! I loved it!
