REVIEW: Catch Me If You Can

Catch Me If You Can

Leonardo Dicaprio, Tom Hanks


December 25, 2002

Steven Spielberg

DreamWorks Pictures

2 hours 21 minutes

A+ (96.5)


Get ready for a movie based on the ultimate game of Cat and Mouse. Frank Abagnale Jr. is a happy teenager living with his parents. But that's not all that Frank is. Before his 19th birthday, he successfully conned 2.3 million dollars out of U.S. banks through forged and homemade checks. So for about 5 years he sucessfully impersanates doctors, lawyers, etc. while making his cash and is still able to get away from the FBI. This movie is not a typical Spielberg flick. This isn't a summer blockbuster movie like Raiders Of The Lost Ark or E.T. Instead, it's a movie that's witty, fun, entertaining, and very fascinating to watch. Leonardo Dicaprio, Tom Hanks, and Christopher Walken are teriffic in this movie and deserved Oscar nominations. (I know Walken got nominated) This movie also happened to be very realistic and fantasy like at the same time. The women in the movie, and yes, there are alot, are potrayed beautifully by many talented actresses like Amy Adams and Jennifer Garner. The chemistry between Dicaprio and Hanks is nearly perfect. Also, it's very interesting how Frank, the main character always manages to slip through the fingers of the FBI, until whenever it ends. But if you're a Spielberg fan and is very interesting in true like stories, then see Leo and Tom have it out in Catch me If You Can.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
