Has a customarily jovial air but a deficit of flim-flam inventiveness.
January 10, 2003
...by the time the end rolls around and the final twist has been revealed, it doesn't seem entirely plausible.

Does little more than repeat the predictable plot twists and character arcs that David Mamet has been recycling for too many years.

A stingless 'Sting'...the viewer may feel that, whatever has happened to the characters, he's the one who's actually been ripped off.

Clever but not especially compelling.

[Even after] the plot's spiralling, shimmering sleights of hand and its never-ending ruses and deceptions . . . the ending will still pull the rug out from under [you].

[It's] a delicious crime drama on par with the slickest of Mamet.
