30 Days of Film (9): A Film with my Favorite Actor

Catch Me If You Can with Tom Hanks. His performance in this movie is just absolutely astounding. He plays FBI Agent Carl Haratty who tries to catch check fraud criminals. DiCaprio plays Frank William Abagnale Jr., a paper hanger on the run since he was 16 years old. The story follows a long amount of time, and Hanks plays the weathered FBI Agent really well. The accent he uses is also perfect.

His best line in the movie?

Hanks: "Well would you like to hear me tell a joke?"
Other FBI Agent: "Yeah. Yeah, we'd love to hear a joke from you."
Hanks: "Knock, knock."
Other FBI Agent: "Who's there?"
Hanks: "Go fuck yourselves."
