MATCHSTICK MEN (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Matchstick Men—a Ridley Scott film—tells the story of con men. It supports Nicolas Cage with a solidly, good script with lots of surprises throughout. The cons are new and entertaining. While it’s not within the same category as The Entertainer, another con movie, it has its own entertainment value.

Storyline

Roy Waller (Nicolas Cage), a con man, finds his health challenges leading him to see a psychiatrist. While at the psychiatrist’s office, he finds out that he has a 14-year-old daughter.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Ridley Scott for his directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Robert Zemeckis for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Frank Mercer (Sam Rockwell), Angela (Alison Lohman), Dr. Klein (Bruce Altman), Chuck Frechette (Bruce McGill), Mrs. Schaffer (Jenny O’Hara), Mr. Schaffer (Jenny O’Hara), Mr. Schaffer (Steve Eastin), Laundry Lady (Beth Grant), and Kathy (Sheila Kelley).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a good guy flick and definitely a watch for the hard-core Nicolas Cage fan.
