This film is full of good clean comedy (despite its title being dirty and rotten!).
It is the tale of two con men, one high-class ‘long game’ player Lawrence Jamison (Michael Caine) who spends his money on “wine you can't drink and European gardens that look like a mowing nightmare” and the other the cheap Ameriacn Freddy benson who would con a woman out of a sandwhich.
Benson arrives in Jamisions town, and the film focusses on the ensuing tussle for rights to work its luxurious and lucrative casino's, hotels and beaches in the form of a deul to scam $50,000 dollars from Amercan “Soap Queen” Janet Colgate.
Their antics are laugh out loud funny, with the highlight of the film being Steve Martin's portrayal of “Ruprecht the Monkey-Boy” as part of his training on how to be a better scammer by Michael Caine's Lawrence Jamison.
9.9/10, an old school classic that is sure to please in a totally non-offensive way.
