THE CON-HEARTIST is a light and frothy and totally mindless. That isn’t a bad thing since it’s perfect for forgetting your troubles for a couple of hours.
The plot has a young woman almost swindled by a handsome man. She then asks his help in swindling her ex out of the money he stole from her. Will romance blossom? Of course it will.
Breezy romcom caper will entertain you for a couple of hours before disappearing completely from your mind. That’s not a knock, because the film does what it’s supposed to which is entertain. However there really isn’t much substance with the result it doesn’t stick with you. This is largely due to the fact that this pretty much hits every cliché out there and as a result it blends into all the other similar films.
My only real problem with the film is the film’s running time which is 127 minutes. It’s a bit much for something this light and to be perfectly honest in the second half I found myself looking at my watch even as I was waiting to see how it came out.
If you want to see something distracting for a couple hours with no aftertaste THE CON-HEARTIST is for you
