Overview

Some things are more valuable than the family jewels…  

The con is on… Prewitt Patry used to be the best con man in the Big Apple. But that was then. Now he's a single father, struggling to provide for his son. Until a golden opportunity falls in his lap, and it just so happens that the 'mark' de-serves everything Prewitt can dish out… Ranger du Courtemanche is the aging patriarch of the ruthless and corrupt Courtemanche family. But despite his opulent facade, his ancestral home is secretly in ruins. Playing on the old man's pride and paranoia, Prewitt convinces Ranger that the Courtemanche family has been targeted by an ancient secret society. And the family is determined to spend the last of their fortune in a desperate (and ludicrous) feud to defend their honor against this ?ctitious foe… As Prewitt's lies take on a life of their own, the aging huckster forms a strange bond with his eccentric marks. Until a new enemy rears its head… Can these mis?ts work together to give this hilarious heist a happy ending?
