The tales are thrilling because they feature people smart enough to steal from the rich to fill their own pocketbooks using complicated tricks. Some of the best movies ever made are about con men and their fascinating schemes. These movies range from exciting heist adventures to following a scammer as he or she flits from town to town,scamming all in sight. Although these movies are, on the surface, about characters who are unscrupulous and willing to screw over anyone for a buck,there are still universal themes involved. Themes like trust, family,friendships, and loyalty appear in most of these movies and are therefore compelling to the average viewer.

 

This list includes movies from all different time periods,from a father daughter team in the 1920s to modern day scam partners. Some of the characters have close relationships to their con artist partners, while others are desperately searching for somebody to connected with, such as The Talented Mr. Ripley.
