Hi there!
I am looking for a movie that came out about 2 or 3 years ago. It is about people conning on the street. One scene with a guy in a bar that changes a 20 for a one just before he pays his beer. I am looking for the name.....
thanx, mb

It came out a lot longer than 2 or 3 years ago and so probably is not the one you are looking for, but a great movie about con artists was "The Grifters." It starred John Cusack and Angelica Houston, it featured loads of cons and scams like the one you mention.

Regards
Dave

I'm pretty sure that is what you are looking for also, it came out in 1987.

After the switch Cusack was jabbed in the gut with a baseball bat.

Other than that move, which Cusack executed beautifully, there was not a whole lot of small time grifting going on.
A direct from text adaptation : The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde Starring Mickey Rooney in his final role.
