Great but so flawed!
I finally got to see this film again. I love this film. But I realized after another viewing with a savvy partner that there are just too many holes in the plot and Mamet isn’t quite as clever as we first think or would like to believe. Too many plot twists just don’t make sense on second viewing. I’d always recommend this movie.. it’s fascinating and has great performances but I think the audience is easily tricked into finding it brilliant. Maybe someone can explain why Martin’s character is so easily found in the car showroom. Did I miss something there? And what if Campbell Scott’s person had actually tried to deliver the tennis book directly to Martin’s sister. That would have been the end of the story, period.

Highly overrated
I am really surprised at how many positive comments there are for this film. This COULD have been a great mystery/suspense film, but like many others of that type, it suffers from impossible plot holes and twists. Other intelligent IMDB readers have noticed this too!

Too often, plot twists are thrown in just for the sake of having a plot twist. In this film, there were far too many and they were far too complicated and risky to believe that they would succeed. The whole con itself was far more complicated than it needed to be. In real life, cons are much more simple and straightforward – they have to be in order to work.

It was a clear case of a con in which “I know that you know that I know that you know that I know that…” looped endlessly out of control.

For a much better example of good plot twists, see Wild Things. This film also probably had one too many twists, but at least they worked and were CONSISTENT.

Even if you could forgive the impossible plot, the acting and direction were still flat, and the pacing laborious.

A 2 out of 10, and that’s being generous!
