The Con
6 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was flipping through channels and this movie was just starting. I said what the heck and decided to watch it. I was super surprised how wonderful it was!!! It is one of those movies that you can forget what is around you, and just enjoy.

With all the horrid stuff that you see at the movies,.and the big name stars, and the advertisements everywhere, and the movies turn out to be crap? Sometimes I feel like just giving up on new films that come out. Anayway this movie was a breath of fresh air. I loved the names they picked, and the southern touches, and how he loved Nancy no matter what. happened. We need more kinds of movies like this. I am going to buy it. Wish it was on DVD.
