THEY’RE GIVING DIRTY ROTTEN MEN A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY.
Two con artists (Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson) run into each other on their way to the French Riviera; deciding that there isn’t enough room for them both, they arrange a contest… An old-fashioned story, done twice before in Bedtime Story (1964) and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988), but this time with women in the leads, deceiving misogynistic men. Alex Sharp has the right James Stewart-like innocence as their latest target, but the two leads’ comedy routines are lukewarm. Everything here is on autopilot.
