John C. Reilly, Diego Luna and Maggie Gyllenhaal star in this Americanized remake of the Argentine art house hit Nine Queens. Filmmaker Stephen Soderbergh (Traffic, Ocean's 11) cranked out the script under a pseudonym and had his producing partner direct it; but the film has a lazy feel to it, aping the original almost shot-for-shot. The story is your typical tale of an elder con man teaching a younger kid the ropes. Twists, turns, double-crosses and back-stabbing behavior abound, but the characters seem secondary to the plot mechanics. If you've seen Nine Queens, don't bother. 87 minutes
