Ca$h is a French caper film, starring Jean Dujardin before he won his Oscar. This review's going to be a little sparse, as I was sick and kind of falling asleep during the movie.

OK! So, Dujardin's brother is murdered during a con. Dujardin's character (Cash) is a grifter and thief, being watched by the cops (one cop in particular), and romancing a beautiful woman whose father he's trying to con. But then she and her father (?) are, in fact, grifters themselves and take Cash for a ride...but maybe there's more layers here?

The acting here is pretty spot on, and I think the movie plays fair by the audience (if it doesn't, I was too tired to notice). Dujardin is fun to watch, and the movie has a nicely satisfying "fuck you" to the bad guys at the end. It's a good heist movie, I don't think it's quite up to the caliber of Ocean's 11, but it's close. If you like that or Leverage, you'll enjoy this.

My Grade: B+
Rewatch Value: Medium. Hard to say. Ironically I'll need to watch it again to know if I want to watch it again.
