Lawrence and Freddie are con-men; big-time and small time respectively. They unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this town (on the French Mediterranean coast) aint big enough for the two of them. They agree to a "loser leaves" bet. The bet brings out the best/worse in the two. Interesting twist at the end. Written by

This is no classic, but I really enjoyed this movie. I've seen too many mediocre "con artist" comedies (i.e., "Two Much", "Opportunity Knocks", etc.) and it's nice to see one that works well. The two leads were great. The dialogue is fabulous. The pace is perfect - it keeps your attention without moving too fast. The script is hilarious. I have no complaints about this movie. Rent it for a lot of laughs.
If, however, you don't like this movie (and I don't see how that's possible), you should still stay till the end. The ending is marvelously done, one of the funniest surprise endings since "The Sting" (another fabulous con artist comedy).
