Edward Burns plays a cocky, well-dressed grifter named Jake Vig who's almost as clever as he thinks he is. Jake and his gang (Paul Giamatti, Brian Van Holt, and Louis Lombardi) make a fast $150,000 in a small time hustle. and head to LA where they find themselves suddenly indebted to a repugnant local mobster with a maniacal grin (Dustin Hoffman) because it was his money they scammed. To make things right, since the money's already gone, Jake agrees to pull a $5 million job on a major bank. It's suddenly the big time for Jake and his small time band of local con men because the complicated plan involves not only bank embezzlement, but also international money laundering, and getting the money back through tight airport security. Jake recruits a sexy pickpocket (Rachel Weisz) to join his team and seems to have worked out the heist down to the last detail, but suddenly there's a complicatlon. A suspicious federal agent (Andy Garcia) stops the two undercover cops (Donal Logue, Luiz Guzman) that Jake has on his payroll. And that's just one of the myriad obstacles to their seemingly foolproof plan. Director James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross) incorporates enough twists and turns to keep the plot spinning nicely, and the fine crew of well-cast supporting players makes all the intricate chicanery most enjoyable film viewing.
