SallyAlbright February 27, 2015 Share February 27, 2015 Will Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame—now an accomplished femme fatale—shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes racecar circuit. In the midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop…and the consummate con man off his game."Focus" is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa ("Crazy, Stupid, Love."). Denise Di Novi ("Crazy, Stupid, Love.") is the producer, with Charlie Gogolak and Stan Wlodkowski serving as executive producers. I really really enjoyed this film. It is just fun, nothing groundbreaking but pretty to look at and made for an enjoyable night at the movies. It's by the same directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love and has that same glossy look to it. This was the most I have enjoyed Will Smith in ages, he was back to his fun, suave, "Hitch" persona instead of the weirdo After Earth serious Will Smith. However, I thought Margot Robbie stole every scene she was in. That girl just has movie star presence, she is obviously gorgeous but really has charisma and talent as well. I have a huge lady crush! Despite their 20 year age difference, she and Will have great chemistry and it makes for a great romantic comedy/caper. Just don't think too hard about a couple of plot holes ;) 1 Link to comment
