Con movies are a dime a dozen, but the chemistry between the cast can help overcome a familiar plot and make for an involving movie. In Focus, Will Smith stars an experienced aging con man who teams up with the incredibly attractive Jess (Margot Robbie) only to find himself falling for her. Sure the plot sounds familiar, but can the chemistry between Smith and Robbie make for great entertainment? We’ll let you decide for yourself.
