Tim Roth and Uma Thurman star in this slapstick comedy about a couple who needs to pay off a debt and hatch up a plan to steal a diamond ring to do so. The action travels across the ocean from England to LA. It very much feels like a British comedy. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments just from pure physical acting. I enjoyed seeing to rather serious dramatic actors in Roth and Thurman let it loose and have fun in this film.

Alice Eve, Sofia Vergara and Maggie Q from Nikita fame play supporting roles in the film. Films like this one have a place and purpose. The plot is wacky but it’s what makes it fun and enjoyable to watch. This is the sort of film to sit back and clear your mind without having to overthink anything.

THE CON IS ON is out now on in select theaters, VOD and iTunes

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
