(mbc.net) Roy Waller (Nicolas Cage) and his pal Frank (Sam Rockwell) are con artists with a successful swindle: selling water purifiers under the pretense that the purchaser has also entered a lottery for bigger prizes.  So far the scam has earned them $1 million collectively.

Cage's character suffers from a myriad of phobias and illnesses that causes him to isolate himself from others.  A 14-year old named Angela (Alison Lohman) appears in his life, a daughter from a failed marriage that he never knew existed.  Angela might just persuade him to live a clean life, albeit in an unconventional way.

Matchstick Men was a commercial success, grossing $65 million at the box office.
