PG-13 | | Biography, Crime, Drama
A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.
Until he saw the results of Leonardo DiCaprio's work, the real Frank Abagnale, Jr. didn't think DiCaprio was "suave" enough to play him.
But, sir, we're gonna let him get away.
Assistant Director Marsh: No, Carl, you let him get away.
In the beginning of the movie, Hanratty visits Abagnale in a French prison and notifies him the terms of his extradition "according to the European Convention on Human Rights". France did not ratify this convention until 3 May 1974.
During the first thirty seconds of the credits we hear the FBI typewriters.
