    Synopsis:
    Get ready to lose your heart - and your bank account - to a couple of sexy sirens in this "vastly enjoyable comedy" (People Magazine)! With a "fist-rate cast" (The New York Times) that includes Sigourney Weaver, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ray Liotta, Jason Lee and Oscar® winner Gene Hackman, this hilarious laugh-riot is "smart and funny" (Joel Siegel, "Good Morning America")!

    When it comes to conning millionaires, Page Conners (Hewitt) and her mother Max (Weaver) are real pros. Max lures them to the altar, then Page leads them into temptation…and a hefty divorce settlement! Now they`re about to strike gold with the ultimate sting: a wealthy, wheezing tobacco tycoon (Hackman). But before they can seal the deal, Page breaks the cardinal rule of the con and falls in love! Now Max must convince Page to hold on to her heart and the tobacco fortune…or lose the best partner in crime she`ll ever have!

    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A cute little comedy about a mother and her daughter and their original ways of getting richer.
    The video transfer is ok. While there are no compression signs at all, some scratches can be noticed occasionally.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are used occasionally but the main emphasis is on the front channels. The soundtrack includes a lot of guitars and they sound great.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include 2 commentaries, 2 behind the scenes featurettes and 19 (!!!) deleted scenes.
    Bottom line - an enjoyable comedy with a great cast and some fine acting moments by Weaver (I just loved her as Olga).
