Warner on Wednesdays - Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)

Warner Grand Theatre
Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Frank Oz directs this remake of the 1963 Brando vehicle Bedtime Story, with Steve Martin as Freddy, a small-time con man who butts heads with Lawrence (Michael Caine), a successful European swindler working the Riviera. Hoping to get rid of one another, they make a loser-leaves bet to scam the fortunes of a wealthy heiress (Glenne Headly). Watching Martin do his slapstick shtick is hilarious, and the lush French Riviera backdrop is gorgeous. Questions - 310.929.8129
