Film: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 3:00pm
Master comedy director Frank Oz (BOWFINGER, IN & OUT) 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 heiress, with the loser leaving town.

Trademark physical comedy from Martin and Caine's smarmy and perfectly timed lines fuel the hilarious competition and decisive showdown--which ends as neither man expects.
