"Old school hilarity, good clean - dirty rotten fun."
5 stars"

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.

Martin is Freddy Benson, a small-time con mansleazing his way through Europe on whatever handouts he can scam. Caine is Lawrence Jamieson, an impeccably dressed and high-minded artiste who thinks Freddy is giving him -- and all con men -- a bad name. At first, Lawrence agrees to help Freddy spruce up his talents and his wardrobe. But when it becomes apparent that the Riviera isn't big enough for the both of them, they make a winner-take-all wager over the fortunes of a naïve American soap heiress (Glenne Headly): The first one to "clean her out" can make the other clear out -- and keep the Riviera and its unsuspecting tourists to himself!
