Lasse Hallstrom directs with a looseness and a snap that has been absent from his recent Oscar-bait productions, and Gere sells Irving's spiel like a con man caught up in his own pitch.

Richard Gere is at his best in years, here, turning a remorseless lout into a likable underdog.

a morality tale, turned sideways and inside out. Equally indicting the hoaxer of the piece, the rapacious greed of the media, and the even more rapacious appetite of the public for the inside story of the rich and famous

The DVD edition of a film that failed commercially includes some deleted scenes; commentary from director Hallstrom and writer Wheeler; the making of docu; and perhaps most intersting, a segment called Mike Wallace's Reflections on a Con.

Though he seems to burrow knowingly into Irving's deeply flawed defective character, Gere's own celebrity-conscious, dramatically restrained performance strangely distances him from the charlatan's likely far more charming and darkly magnetic persona.

...a good movie, a mesmerizing movie, thanks to the acting, to the characterizations, and to Hallstrom's deft handling of the material and his recreation of the period.
