Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: This is the tale of how their scheme worked and why it ultimately ended in disaster. There's just something about the speed with which all the pieces come together to spell disaster that makes you laugh, or at least snort in amazement.

Con: Obviously the story is very silly. And wouldn't all these fake bills have the same serial numbers?
