Harry Deane (Colin Firth) is a man with a plan. Art curator for media tycoon Lord Lionel Shahbandar (Alan Rickman), Harry devises an elaborate plot to con Shahbandar into purchasing a fake Monet painting. With the help of beautiful rodeo queen PJ Puznowski (Cameron Diaz), the pair hatch a scheme to fool Shahbandar into believing that Harry's expert forgery is the real deal and pocketing a hefty sum in the process. But with the con proving harder to pull off than he had first intended, Harry and PJ find themselves in increasingly hilarious situations in order to see the job through to the end.
If the actors read these reviews- I ask all of you why did you agree to this script? I hope the money was good as I have wasted mine!
Brilliant movie, very funny and entertaining! The characters are undoubtedly caricatures and it is quite slapstick but Colin Firth, Alan Rickman and Cameron Diaz are excellent in their roles. I loved this film - don't be put off by the bad reviews here, it's one of the best films I've seen in a while!
Waste of good cast
Very disappointing. Trailer looks good (hey don't they all?) Alan Rickman's character looked worth the price alone. Reality is a total waste, very poor. I looked it up online - wasn't even released in cinemas in the US. Says it all - really not good.
