All goes well until the two get closer than Nicky would like and after the con, Nicky ends the relationship and leaves her.

While Jess swears that she is on Nicky’s side and also is conning the billionaire, in a business like Nicky’s where loyalty and trust are non-existent, it’s hard to know which side she is really on.

Paycheck stars Ben Affleck, Aaron Eckhart, Uma Thurman, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore, Joe Morton, Michael C. Hall, Kathryn Morris, Ivana Milicevic, Peter Friedman and Michelle Harrison.

Paycheck is the story of Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck), a master of reverse engineering who gets paid by large corporations to crack the secrets of their competitors’ products and how they work. His latest job took 2 months to complete and he was paid handsomely. However, in exchange for the large paycheck, he also agrees to have his memory of all the work on the project wiped from his brain.

Jennings is the best in the business and is approached by James Rethrick (Aaron Eckhart), tech billionaire and head of Allcom, who wants to discuss a huge potential job opportunity with a very large payday. Without divulging  anything about the project itself, Rethrick promises him it will probably earn him eight figures but could take 2 to 3 years to complete. In order to learn more, Michael must contractually agree to take the job before he would find out anything about the actual project itself. He would also have to agree to a complete memory wipe back to the project start date to protect the secrets of Allcom. Standard procedure in Michael’s business but that is more than anyone has ever wiped which was incredibly risky.

Michael weighs the trade off of the large paycheck in exchange for losing up to 3 years of his life and memories, maybe more if something goes wrong. However, eight figures is hard to refuse and Jennings agrees and begins immediately. A marker is implanted in his cortex to pinpoint the start of the project which will be used as the reference point for his memory wipe upon completion. The contract states he must stay at Allcom for the duration of the project and also must turn in all of his personal effects to be returned when the project is completed.

Michael completes the job and goes to have his memory erased and collect his paycheck and his personal effects. Once his memory is erased, he finds out the project took 3 years and he earned $90 million dollars during his time on the job. When he goes to claim it and his stuff, he discovers that before his memory wipe he had waived his rights to the money and rather than the belongings he had checked in, he was handed an envelope with miscellaneous and random objects inside. Confused and angry with no memory of what had transpired, he is escorted out of Allcom.

Soon after, Jennings is arrested by the FBI who state he committed some act of treason and murder while working at Allcom. He remembers nothing. But, while in custody, he manages to escape using some of the items in the envelope he was given. Now he is a fugitive being chased by the FBI while at the same time, Rethrick is also after him and Michael soon realizes that the fate of the entire world might be in his hands.

Movie Quotes

“Look, if we know anything, we know that time travel’s not possible. Einstein proved that. right?” – Shorty
“Time ‘travel’, yes. But Einstein was very clear that he believed time viewing, theoretically, could be accomplished.” – Michael Jennings 
“Michael Jennings is not a super agent, he’s an engineer. Yet, somehow he managed to escape from a double-locked room. How? Was it fate? No. Fate was on our side. That means someone who knew, changed something.” – James Rethrick

“Let’s take a look at the future before we destroy this thing.” – Michael Jennings

“If you show someone their future, they have no future.” – Michael Jennings

A Fish Called Wanda stars John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin, Tom Georgeson, Maria Aitken, Cynthia Cleese, Patricia Hayes, Geoffrey Palmer and Stephen Fry.

A Fish Called Wanda is the story of four unlikely thieves who team up to plan and execute a large diamond heist in London worth £13 million. George Thomason (Tom Georgeson), a British gangster and his right-hand man Ken Pile (Michael Palin) recruit two arrogant Americans, Wanda Gerschwitz (Jamie Lee Curtis) a grifter and Otto West (Kevin Kline), a weapons expert to steal the diamonds.

When the job goes badly, Wanda and Otto plan to double cross George by having him arrested for the heist, while they abscond with the jewels. With an anonymous tip, they are able to get George arrested with him not knowing who tipped the police off. In the process, George is being implicated by an elderly eye witness named Eileen Coady (Patricia Hayes) who saw the whole thing.

With George in jail, Wanda and Otto go to the agreed upon hiding place only to discover that he in turn has protected his investment by moving the jewels to a different location with Ken being the only other person who knows where they are. While in custody, George tasks Ken, an animal lover with an extreme stuttering problem, with killing Mrs. Coady before she is able to testify against him, as she is the crown’s primary witness.

Meanwhile, Wanda has a plan of her own and she attempts to seduce George’s stuffy defense Barrister, Archie Leach (John Cleese), to find out where George hid the diamonds so she can double cross everyone and make off with the loot.

Movie Quotes

“To call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people! I’ve known sheep who could outwit you. I’ve worn dresses with higher IQ’s. But you think you’re an intellectual don’t you, ape” – Wanda
“Apes don’t read philosophy.” – Otto
“Yes they do, Otto. They just don’t understand it.” – Wanda 
“Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not ‘Every man for himself.’ And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up.” – Wanda

“Avoid the green ones. They’re not ripe yet.” – Otto

“Wanda, do you have any idea what it’s like being English? Being so correct all the time, being so stifled by this dread of, of doing the wrong thing, of saying to someone “Are you married?” and hearing “My wife left me this morning,” or saying, uh, “Do you have children?” and being told they all burned to death on Wednesday. You see, Wanda, we’re all terrified of embarrassment. That’s why we’re so… dead. Most of my friends are dead, you know, we have these piles of corpses to dinner. But you’re alive, God bless you, and I want to be, I’m so fed up with all this. I want to make love with you, Wanda. I’m a good lover – at least I used to be, back in the early 14th century. Can we go to bed?” – Archie Leach

A Perfect Getaway is the story of Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich), an adventurous couple enjoying their honeymoon on Kauai while getting ready to hike a gorgeous 11-mile trail to a spectacular secluded beach. On their way, the couple stops for Cleo (Marley Shelton) and Kale (Chris Hemsworth), another pair of newlyweds trying to hitch a ride by the side of the road. Cliff gets intimidated by Kale and tells the couple they need to find another ride and Cliff and Cydney drive off.

Cliff and Cydney get to the trail head and begin their adventure. A short while into the hike, they get to a narrow ridge in the trail and are unsure they can make it across. While contemplating turning around, another hiker, Nick (Timothy Olyphant) shows up and demonstrates how to cross a particularly tricky section of the trail and the trio continue to walk together.

Further up the trail, the trio comes across a group of upset girls who were trying to get their cell phones to work after losing their signal while one girl was speaking to her father. On the call she learned that a young couple had been found dead in Honolulu. The victims had their teeth pulled out and fingerprints removed and the police are on the lookout for a man and a woman as suspects. As it turns out, Cliff and Cydney just came from there before they embarked on the trail and Nick mentions he was also just there.

The trio continues to hike when Nick decides to break off from them. He mentions that he just hiked back to get some things he forgot. Cliff and Cydney discuss whether they should stick with Nick who is walking back to his camp or if they should continue. Nick doesn’t mind either way. The couple was about to head off on their own when Cliff suddenly has a change of heart after spotting Cleo and Kale on the trail just below them. They stick with Nick and continue to a waterfall, where Nick’s girlfriend Gina (Kiele Sanchez) is lying down on a raft naked. Nick strips off his clothes and joins her in the water.

The next morning, the two couples trek their way towards the popular beach. It will not take them long to realize that both Nick and Gina are a little odd and suspiciously fit the description of the killers.

A Bronx Tale is the story of Calogero Anello (Lillo Brancato Jr.), an Italian boy growing up in a Bronx neighborhood in the 1960’s.  As a 9 year old boy, Calogero witnesses a murder right outside of his building where mob boss Sonny LoSpecchio (Chazz Palminteri) apparently shoots a man over a dispute over a parking space.  The police come and ask Calogero’s father Lorenzo Anello (Robert De Niro) to bring Calogero down to the street level to identify the shooter.  Sonny and his crew are all lined up in front of Sonny’s Social Club and the police go down the line asking Calogero who shot the man.  Calogero looks at each man and says no.  The last in line is Sonny and he looks him in the eyes and says no.

From that point on, Sonny befriends Calogero over the objection of Lorenzo.  Calogero sneaks out any time he can and spends time with Sonny and delivers drinks to his patrons and collects tips.  Lorenzo tells Sonny to leave his son alone and Calogero continues.  All of the mobsters have nicknames and Sonny tells Calogero that his name is too long and reduces to to simply ‘C’.

Fast forward 6 years and C is in High School and hangs with his wannabe mob friends who are always starting trouble.  Sonny tells him to not hang out with his friends and to stay in school so he gets two educations.  One from school and one from the street.  At school, C develops a crush on Jane Williams (Taral Hicks) and asks Lorenzo and Sonny both for advice because Jane is a girl of color which might be frowned upon in that neighborhood in the ’60’s.  Lorenzo tells Calogero that it would be best to date a white girl and Sonny is supportive of C’s feelings and tells him he should pursue it stating you get three great loves in your life and Jane could be one of them if she passed the ‘Sonny Test’.

“The saddest thing in life is wasted talent.” – Lorenzo Anello

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is the story of two con men competing to swindle an American heiress out of $50,000. Lawrence Jamieson (Michael Caine) is a suave educated British con man who stages elaborate ruses to con rich women out of their wealth so he can maintain a lavish lifestyle. Freddy Benson (Steve Martin) is a less-refined American small-time hustler on the hunt for twenty-dollar bills and free meals.

Lawrence believes Freddy is a con man working his way through Europe known as the Jackal. Lawrence uses his inside ties in the police department to get Freddy out of his territory by putting him on a plane out of the country to avoid prosecution. Freddy meets one of Lawrence’s marks on the plane and she inquires how Freddy knows the prince and Freddy figures out that Lawrence is a con man as well. Freddy decides to blackmail Lawrence and forces him to teach him the art of the big con. During his tutelage Freddy and Lawrence team up on a few different wealthy women.

Eventually, Lawrence and Freddy have a difference in how to operate their joint cons, so they make a bet: the person who is able to con a mark out of $50,000 with get the French Riviera as their territory, with the other having to leave forever. With intelligence from Inspector Andre (Anton Rodgers) he alerts Lawrence about the arrival of American ‘Soap Queen’ Janet Colgate (Glenne Headly) who just arrived in the area and they make her the bet.
