Lawrence and Freddie are con-men big-time and small time respectively. They unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this town (on the French Mediterranean coast) aint big enough for the two of them. They agree to a loser leaves bet. The bet brings out the bestworse in the two. Interesting twist at the end.

We have taken some photos of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels". They represent actual movie quality.
This is outright hilarious. I admit I haven't seen the original version, but this one is fantastic. It's choc full of witty and intelligent humour and it's well acted too. Back in the day when I first saw this, I didn't see the ending coming. Who would have guessed. Without giving anything away, in a nutshell Steve Martin and Michael Caine compete to see who can swindle a set amount of dollars off a particular lady first. It's a riot watching these two act out bizzare plots just to win the cash. You must see this - you will be in stitches.
An amusing remake of the 1964 "Bedtime Story"that starred David Niven and Marlon Brando. Better in some regards, worsein others. I noticed that one other user commented that this felt like acomedy from the 60's, and that's probably because it is.There are some great one-liners in thisremake that make it quite memorable, although it seems to descend into therealm of slapstick and bathroom humor more than the original.Same plot, same characters, many of the samejokes. See the original and compare.
Steve Martin at his loudest. Michael Caine at his dryest. Frank Oz at his smartest. Who could ask for anything more? A great script, amazing acting and wonderful direction makes Dirty, Rotten, Scoundrels one of the best comedies out there. It combines humor, surprise and conmen to make a deliciously malicious movie!Fred Benson (Steve Martin) is a loud and obnoxious American con man, who gets sympathy from wealthy women who give him money. Laurence Jameson (Michael Caine) is a sophisticated European con man who takes womens money by playing the freedom-fighter prince fighting the communists. They meet in a train car, and their lives are never the same. They end up having a rivalry which builds up to them having a bet. All or nothing. Whoever gets a certain heiress to pay 50,000 dollars first gets the money, and stays in town to con more rich women, while the other leaves empty handed. An original script executed in such a way that you want to watch it over and over! It has rewatchability and is just to darn funny to pass up!
The comedy film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is directed by Frank Oz andstars Steve Martin and Michael Caine. The film takes place in themodern day French Riviera.The films starts off with a French man, Lawrence Jamieson (Caine),performing a con on a young, rich woman. He sits next to the woman in acasino and they play roulette together, Lawrence bets on all the samenumbers as the woman. When he loses all his money he tells hisassociate that he would like to sell his ring for some more money, andto that his associate replies that he can't sell the royal ring. SoLawrence leaves the table and the woman follows. Lawrence tells herthat he in facts is a Prince and is trying to raise money to help savethe people of his country. She eventually gives him a large sum ofmoney to help out the cause. Then Lawrence goes on a train and watcheshow Freddy Benson cons a woman into buying him a meal by saying how heis saving money to help his grandmother. After a series of eventsFreddy takes lessons from Lawrence even though Lawrence is secretlytrying to get him to leave the area because he does not want Freddy toruin the con hunt for him. Then these two dirty rotten scoundrels makea bet to see who is the better con artist...The screenplay for this film was really quite witty and clever. It wasentertaining the whole way through and the characters were very evenlybalanced. By that I mean that there really was not one character Ifavored the whole way through until really the end I chose a side. Thejokes were solid and I thought the absolute ending was brilliant. Ithought part of the end was predictable but then it just took that andbrought it to a new level. A very delightful screenplay and it wasconverted delightfully to the screen.The direction for this film by Frank Oz was also quite good. He gotgreat comedic performances from his leads and also kept a film thatcould have easily been drawn out and boring entertaining. There wasreally no complex shots in this film but none were really requiredbecause it was not trying to be an epic film or something of that sort.What made the direction truly great, and all great comedies great isthe reaction shots. They were all perfectly timed and just soeffective. Oz proved that he is a comedic force to be reckoned with.The acting in this film was hilarious, enjoyable, and so easy to getsucked into. Caine was great as Lawrence Jamieson using severaldifferent accents brilliantly and making it so easy to like him as aperson even though he makes a living out of stealing other people'smoney. He is the cultured French man who also loves the art of the con.Steve Martin was also wonderful as Freddy Benson who was the amateurcon artist that only had really one trick up his sleeve but had tocompete in the big league against Lawrence. He provided most of thegreat reaction shots and to tell you the truth I forgot that both ofthe two were acting and just got sucked into the film.Overall I give this film a solid 8/10. I would recommend this to anyonewho loves a smart, entertaining comedy.
This is one of those movies that you can watch over and over again...and it's still as funny as the first time you saw it. Martin is wonderful in this movie and Caine the same. This movie is a MUST SEE!
Being the huge fan of Steve Martin that I am, I must say that Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is one of my favorites. It contains brilliant acting from Michael Caine, plus a hilarious performance by Steve Martin. Not only is this one of my favorite Steve Martin films, but it is also one of his funniest. So if you're wandering through the aisles at your local video store and looking for something to watch, just go pick up Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and prepare to laugh yourself silly!
This review is from: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (DVD) Steve Martin and Michael Caine are absolutely amazing in this film. I recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humor and wants to laugh. A classic comedy.
This is by far the funniest film that I have ever seen. What's more, you can see it several times and still laugh each time!! Steve Martin (Freddy) and Michael Caine are just so completely unlike one another. One's rough, loud, unsophisticated, oily. The other's sharp, suave, a gentleman. But underneath it all, both are essentially the same- dirty rotten scoundrels. It takes them a while to figure out one another, but having done that, they realize that both cannot play the same game in the same town. This results in a wager, with the loser being required to bow out. The rest of the movie is just out-and-out hilarious. This is a movie that you just cannot NOT watch. If you haven't already, please see it today. You will not be disappointed.
i want know the name of the song when michael caine is dancing with glenne headly on the disco...
This movie was about con artists trying to con a female con artist. The result was comedy that had it moments, but wasn't particularly great. I do wish there was more slapstick, but the movie was clever at times.I am not a great fan of Steve Martin, but he was funny when he pretended to play "Prince Ruprecht", the 'brother' of Caine's. Using the restroom at the table and banging pots around to chase women away from marriage was pretty funny. I wish the movie was more like that.
This review is from: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (DVD) I have watched this movies several times, and it always makes me laugh!It is a stellar movie! I truly LOVE IT!
Those couple of reviewers who rate this movie poorly have obviously fallen off a cliff and broken every funny bone in their bodies ! This is a great movie. It is full of laughs from beginning to end and I thoroughly recommend it.
This review is from: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (DVD) So funny, so good. You can't go wrong with Steve Martin & Michael Caine. My favorite character is Ruprect.
This review is from: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (DVD) I had watched this film once, a very long time. but Unfortunately I couldn't actually catch the title as well as I wasn't able to get it from amazon.com, but Now I could WOW! because of hilarious scenes & clever moral that brings up excitement till the end of this film which made me insistingly impulse buying it, and to search for in amazon and place my order immediately. Both actors have played their role perfectly & cunningly! but there was third unexpected person who played this rotten dirty game which made steve & michael declare their loss ...if you want to know who is he or she! you can buy this interesting movie, good choice! doooooooon't miss it......
This review is from: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (DVD) Michael Caine and Steve Martin are at their BEST in this...it's a monthly movie sitting for our family..it's just too wonderful -too bad more movies like this are not made nowdays.
A wonderfully structured comedy, with a great cast and solid script.Michael Caine is the best con man in town, until Steve Martin turns upand challenges his superiority. They decide that the first one to conmoney out of Miss Janet Colgate will have the right to the towns manyeasy targets.With the deal done the con is on, and its a battle of wits, between thetwo men, with a very surprising winner! Hilarious and fresh as the dayit was made.A classic comedy treat 8/10 also watch Heartbreakers, its has a similartheme and is just as good.
Just get the dvd it is an essential landmark of the gathering of two different kinds of actors in a symbiotic performance. The Portuguese subtitles are in fact "Brasilian". Too bad people will never learn the difference.
Chauvinist Steve Martin meets up with suave, sophisticated MichaelCaine in this not very good film. They both have one thing in common,they like to cheat people-big time. Martin has a long way to go.While the music to Puttin' on the Ritz plays, Martin is taught thetricks of the trade by Caine. The latter views Martin as a threat;therefore, he had better watch him while keeping him around.Martin's idea of having women pay for everything since they outlive menwill naturally backfire in the presence of Glenne Headly. The film,with corny humor, doesn't sparkle because of the predictable factor aswell as the material that is given to the actors.
"Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" is a classic comedy, driven from beginning to end by the crafty characters created by Michael Caine and Steve Martin. The storyline has been addressed extensively by other reviewers, but I will add that this film definitely breaks Mom's old rule: "don't make fun of the handicapped." Not only are Martin and Caine's characters both morally handicapped in the extreme, but Martin gets to play not one but two handicapped characters as he works his cons: one is in a wheelchair, and the other (Ruprecht)....well, I don't know exactly what Ruprecht's handicap is, but I can understand why he's kept locked up in his room. Finally, this movie has a lovely look to it, allowing you to take a fantasy trip to the French Riviera, stay in the finest hotels and villas, and sip the best champagne - that's a step up from most movies these days right there. No explosions or violence. Amazing.
This movie is awesome! I saw it as a kid and will never forget it. I've seen it many times since. Steve Martin (Freddie) and Michael Caine (Lawence) play con men who swindle money out of rich women. Steve is the younger, much less sophisticated crook who barely manages to con a dinner and 20$ out of a woman, while Michael Caine is the older, professional con man who cons woman out of millions. Lawrence is afraid the bumbling Freddie will 'scare big game' away from his hunting ground so he decides to get rid of Freddie all while pretending to be teaching him. Things get even funnier when the two make a bet to con an innocent beauty queen and they end up with some very unexpected results! I loved the acting in this, loved the humor and most of all loved the ending. Of all the sequals which should have been made, this is at the top of my list!
