Storyline: Brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale), along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Adams), is forced to work for a wild FBI agent named Richie DiMaso (Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey power-brokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. But it's Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Lawrence) who could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. - Redbox.com
One thing I continue to fail at grasping is why Jermey Renner continues to get parts in such great films. He's just not that strong of an actor (in my humble opinion). Not only is he not that strong, but he, as a person, seems to be really unlikable in almost every interview I have seen him in. People like Bruce Willis, who has been making movies for 30 years, can get away with that type of attitude. Someone who's career has only really reached the "big leagues" since 2008's Hurt Locker. So it miiiight be a little premature to become an insufferable jerk.
