A couple of brothers who have spent their lives involved in elaborate cons, usually requring one of them to fake death in the end, decide to carry out one last job, taking in a lonely heiress by pretending they are smugglers dealing in antiques, and recruiting her as one of the team. As the scam plays out it becomes more and more difficult to determine what is fake and what is real.
The heiress crashes her Lambo quite a bit, and she is shown to be extemely eccentric. They travel on a ship, visiting a number of countries, most notably Prague and St Petersburg. Various scams take place. There is gunfire and real and fake blood, also some explosions. Implied sex but no nudity. Some drinking mainly in bars.
This film is too clever for its own good, and for the audience. If I dare include a bit of a spoiler, the con men are scamming the heiress, who is eccentric and endearing, of a large sum of money, but actually it appears that she would have given it to them had they asked. It was moderately well liked by the critics but did not make any money. If you fancy watching it be warned that it has failings.
