Matchstick Men

Alison Lohman is not Nicolas Cage's daugher, but part of a sting (with Sam Rockwell, Bruce Altman and probably others) to con Nicolas Cage out of his money. Years later, Nicolas Cage now has a real job as a carpet salesman, where he meets Alison again and they make up. Nicolas Cage then goes home to reveal that he has married again, this time to the cashier he kept going to at the supermarket. Plus Nicolas Cage's new wife is also pregnant.

Big Evil

Other mistake: As Roy meets his daughter, he gets out of his car and we see the car door left open as he runs towards her. Near the end of their conversation, the camera focuses on Roy, and through the space between his body and right arm, you can see the side view mirror indicating the door is now shut without anyone touching it. (00:26:50)

Question: I didn't quite understand the ending. Was Angela fooling Roy the whole time, or did she decide to after she met him? Were Frank and Angela working together?

Answer: Angela was working with Frank the whole time, she wasn't actually his daughter. Roy's shrink (Dr. Klein) & Chuck Frechette (the money laundering guy) were in on the con as well.

If Chuck was also in on the con then why was Frank so beaten up? And why would they bring up the whole talk about the ashtray from the gift store and how the camera in there had seen Angela if Chuck was already supposed to know about it all?
