Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Heartbreakers

Paige and her mother are very clever con-artists. After a successful con, Paige wants to leave her mother and start a life on her own. When Paige doesn't have enough money yet from the last con she agrees to one more. The 2 women con an old man from Palm Beach. He is filthy rich and falls for the con. Meanwhile Paige finds herself falling inlove with a man she met. When the old man dies before the con is over Paige's mother find herself face to face with her last con victim. He demands his money when he realizes the 2 women had played him and the only way they can get it is to con Paige's love interest. Things don't turn out as they'd expected though. This is a very funny and entertaining film!
