Wait I thought all movies had to be real? You're saying this whole thing was fiction? How can this be?

The issue is that it bills itself as completely true, when there’s really no truth in it at all.

Tbf when Hollywood advertises something as “Based on a true story,” that is almost always a clear indicator that it is either completely fictional, or takes so many liberties with the actual story that it is practically fictional.

I find that even funnier given the context. It’s a con about a con. To me, this doesn’t ruin it at all.
