Think gritty 70s style lawyer escapade with Paul Newman, but replace Paul with Matt and add a light comedy touch with Danny. It could have been a contender but is much to light.

Matt is ok, the premise is ok and later on Danny is convincing as a wheeler dealer but the whole package falls short.

I still liked the movie but I’ve seen a lot better of these types. The drama here is not tight enough and for that I think I’m going to blame the director – Francis Ford Coppola.
