"Three and a half stars (R)
Based-on-fact caper movie about Clifford Irving’s outrageous early ‘70s mega-scam, when he secured a lucrative book deal as the co-author of the “autobiography” of billionaire recluse Howard Hughes. The story is well acted, engaging and consistently entertaining. Some of the based-on-facts have been changed, but that should come as no surprise. 116 minutes.
DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track by director Lasse Hallstrom and writer William Wheeler, deleted scenes, and extended scene, plus featurettes.
