Focus-trailer Cons, Vexing

Despite its title and the fact that Will Smith continually mouth-dumps exposition about how pulling a con requires attention to detail, Focus is hella sloppy.

A gleefully cheeky action-comedy that nearly perfectly sends up 007.

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension.

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.
