Smug, cutesy and self-satisfied, with a Larry David-does-Steinbrenner ADD voiceover track that doesn't quite work, THE INFORMANT! nevertheless succeeds on the paunchy belly and under the luxurious hairpiece of an almost unrecognizable Matt Damon. The convoluted plot is (literally) all over the map, and as Damon's wife, Melanie Lynskey seems stuck in another era. But kudos to Marvin Hamlisch's retro score. And Scott Bakula looks uncannily like KTTV photographer Rodger Howard. Jeff Schultz
