Ruprecht, do you want the genital cuff?By JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 29 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Michael Caine turns in a brilliant performance as a con artist who preys on rich, corrupt women in his own small town on the French Riviera. As in all great comedies, his foil is equally talented - the incomparable Steve Martin, in an unforgettable role as a small time American con artist. Martin's physical comedy is the perfect match for Caine's impeccable style and delivery. This is a movie filled with memorable scenes and unforgettable lines. Glen Headly - an intelligent, attractive actress more than held her own opposite Caine and Martin. It is easy to first overlook her work but after the movie is over, you realize how effortless, artful, and complicated her performance is.
The plot moves quickly through the simultaneous cooperation and competition between the two crooks, and their seems to be no limit to their pranks. The chemistry between the two actors is more than convincing, it is electric - it produces an atmosphere of intelligent, witty humor reminiscent of the earlier comedies to which it pays tribute; however, there is nothing innocent or naive about this movie.

Classic comedyBy The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 14 Mar 2013Steve Martin, Michael Caine. Classic comedy of mutual scamming based around a romance between the scammers. Good fun and deservedly a classic.
Loved this.By Thegaycritic (125 reviews) , 03 Mar 2013I'd never seen this movie despite being a fan of both lead actors. Thought it was very good. And Glenne Headly was amazing in it.
