The Hart's Con the Cons
12 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Jonathan fakes his death in order to smoke out the bad guys trying to swindle him out of his money. This episode would have sat better with me if Jennifer had been pretending to be the grieving wife in the immediately days after Jonathan's "murder." But instead she's her own bubbly self, which shoudl have been a tipoff to the bad guys right there. Alas, the rest of the episode was entertaining. Jonathan dons a pretty good disguise for the time, and his glasses are actual prescription, which you can tell during certain camera shots. It's always fun to see Deanne and Stanley. Jonathan's disguise isn't going to fool anyone, but it's entertaining. My favorite part was the name dropping of Frank Westmore, "Hollywood makeup artist." Which he is. Also the uncle of Michael Westmore, famous makeup artist in his own right, mainly known for his award-winning Star Trek work.
