An extremely odd couple - a young Latino man who will do anything for his family and a 30-something scheming white guy who will do anything to his family - come across one of the most valuable pieces of currency in U.S. history. All they have to do is sell it, which is where the real problems begin. And of course, the only way out is family - the one person who can help them, hates them both: the schemer's sister! Starring Academy Award-nominee John C. Reilly ("Chicago" "The Perfect Storm"), Diego Luna ("Terminal", "Open Range"), Golden Globe-nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal ("Mona Lisa Smile", "Adaptation") and Jonathan Tucker ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Hostage"). Produced by George Clooney and Stephen Soderbergh ("Good Night, And Good Luck", "Syriana"). Written and directed by Gregory Jacobs.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Jacobs has brought the barrio into noir, and that's no small achievement. If nothing else, it opens the door to a whole new galaxy of grift.
Rotten: The problems lie not with the actors but with a glib approach that exposes the flaws of the original story.
Fresh: A breathless and dazzling caper that knocks your socks off.
Fresh: Doesn't exactly reinvigorate an overworked genre, but neither does it disgrace the format or the original movie.
