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...
View all Dirty Rotten Scoundrels reviews
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.

"The French Riviera is a coastline resort for the wealthy that has room only for one con-man. Therefore, it becomes a bit crowded when it finds itself the stomping grounds for two scoundrels, one smooth and sophisticated, the other, crass and crude, but both of them, dirty and rotten. With comedy not as sharp as it first might appear or with as much confidence as other like-minded films, DRS's strength comes from the pitch perfect chemistry of Steve Martin and Michael Caine. Their combined th"

"Re-watch - Feb. 22nd The kiddo and I followed up Singin' in the Rain with an old favorite of mine, having decided prior to the weekend that today we'd watch movies at home all day. She's at the right age to appreciate and understand this movie, and watching her laugh through the Ruprecht scenes brought me a lot of joy. Knowing how the film plays out doesn't detract from it at all on repeat viewings, and in fact I'd argue it only enriches the experience. I'm glad I was able to share this with he"

" 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"
