A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive partner Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild F.B.I. Agent, Richie DiMaso, who pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and the Mafia.
The infant that Jeremy Renner kisses on the hands while greeting people as the Mayor on the streets of Camden is a special cameo of Renner's newborn baby girl, Ava Berlin Renner, who was born during production. The woman holding Ava in the same scene is Ava's mother and Renner's girlfriend, Sonni Pacheco. David O. Russell asked Renner's mother to cameo in the scene as well, but she declined the offer. Sonni and Ava can be seen briefly in the movie, and in the first theatrical trailer for the film.
