35th Anniversary Screening of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Director: Frank Oz, Cast: Steve Martin, Michael Caine, Glenne Headly, 1h 50m, PG
Con artist Lawrence Jamieson is a longtime resident of a luxurious coastal resort, where he enjoys the fruits of his deceptions — that is, until a competitor, Freddy Benson, shows up. When the new guy’s lowbrow tactics impinge on his own work, Jamieson resolves to get rid of him. Confident of his own duplicitous talents, Jamieson challenges Benson to a winner-takes-all competition: whoever swindles their latest mark first can stay, while the other must leave town. “The chemistry between Martin and Caine is fun, and Headly provides a resilient foil as a woman who looks like a pushover but somehow never seems to topple.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
