Absolutely the most stupid thing in this movie was the ages of the people whom a judge committed to this swindler's supervision. One victim was 69, another was 70. In that age group the worst thing that happens to the majority of people is aching joints. They still have full mental acuity. Maybe some people are incapable of caring for themselves physically when they reach 80 and even then they are mentally sound. Most take a decade longer than that. In this film, the people who needed guardianship the most were the judge and the writers.
