Who Is Cletis Tout?
Cletis Tout is a comedy about mistaken identities, a hit man who sees everything in terms of the movies and a twenty year old diamond heist.
Following a successful prison break, two thieves, Finch (Christian Slater), who is skilled in the art of forgery and fraud, and Micah (Richard Dreyfuss), a jewel thief, set out to recover diamonds acquired in a heist some twenty years earlier. After arranging new identities they are thrust into a life-threatening situation when the Mob mistakes Finch for murdered journalist, Cletis Tout.
