A good movie

Even though I keep watching his movies (I have seen already 22 of them), I usually have a hard time with Steve Martin. Lately, I have watched many of his movies and I must admit I don't really enjoy his work, even the most highly regarded movies such as 'The Jerk' or 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles'. However, this flick is one of the few exceptions. Indeed, it is not amongst his most famous flicks b... read more

Hilarious movie, one of my all-time favorites. Great setting, fantastic cast, and impeccable timing of puns. Michael Caine's a schemer, Steve Martin a scalawag, but there's a scoundrel there somewhere...

Master comedy director Frank Oz sets two con men against each other in a struggle for a French seaside town, the perfect territory for duping gullible and wealthy vacationers. Smooth and complacent swindler Lawrence Jamieson (Michael Caine) is infuriated when clumsy but effective con man Freddy Benson (Steve Martin) encroaches on his hunting grounds. When Benson proves persistent, Jamieson makes him a bet over who will be the first to get $50,000 out of a visiting American soap queen, with the loser leaving town.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2018 (31 movies items)

" Amazon Prime- 1hr. 50min. First Viewing While the first act begins a bit too episodically and the film, at times, tries too hard to be funny, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels hits its stride as the one-ups-manship becomes more exaggerated, allowing Caine and Martin (and Glenne Headly, as the film goes on) to really dig in to the solid material.

"First Watched 1/8/2018 This film was pretty funny and Caine and Martin really do play off each other well! Now there were a few gags that made me cringe more then laugh but I think that just comes down to personal comedic preference. Also, not only was the comedy good but the characters felt like actual characters throughout the film (for the most part) and I think that sucked me into the film even more and made simple hilarious moments even funnier for me personally. Plus, I was actually s"
