Quotes

[first lines]
Joe Donan: Most people like to think they have some degree of control over their lives. The truth is we're subject to the influence of others. Those who appreciate this can make a lot of money from those who don't. But any small-time grifter who ever dealt off the bottom of a deck can tell you that. What I can tell you about is the price one pays for peddling confidence. How every mark you fleece takes away a piece of your soul, and what happens when you try to pick up the pieces.

crappy movie save Cage's performance
7 July 1999 | by Mojo-37See all my reviews

Watch this movie solely for Nicolas Cage's performance, it is worth it. I can't even remember the stupid plot to this stinkbomb, but I really wasn't paying attention either. Cage is absolutely hilarious the pimp character. If you like Cage's weird acting movies this is one not to miss
