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.
When it appeared that Gore Verbinski would direct, Chloë Sevigny and Ed Harris were both considered for roles.

Judge: Mr. Conners, this is a preliminary hearing. There is no... defendant. There is no... jury. It's just me. Son... what in the HELL is ...
Frank Abagnale Jr. was never on any FBI's Most Wanted List as shown in the film. Only violent offenders are included in such lists.
During the first thirty seconds of the credits we hear the FBI typewriters.
In the French language version of the film, Frank teaches his high school Spanish class instead of French.
