Total waste of time, movie is a bigger con than Barry Minkow ever was
7 March 2018 | by amrahs_timaSee all my reviews

I can't believe the shameless plugs by the makers of this movie as positive reviews here on IMDB. This movie is made by a ragtag team of high schoolers looking for something to do during the summer break. Its creators have no clue about storytelling. The theme had potential since I remember Barry Minkow's rise and fall. In better hands this could have been made into a great movie going experience. I am partial to conmen movies but this rendition is definitely not it. It is one hour forty minutes of your life you will regret wasting.
