What Went Wrong?
8 December 2006 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

There's some very good talent in front of the camera in this lighthearted movie about con men conning other con men; and there are signs that someone who understood something about subtext had a hand in the script, as lies are expounded, confidences betrayed and reality starts to bend so much that you can't tell who is playing what.... when Walter Catlett impersonates Ed Wynn, Jerry Lester apes Jimmy Durante and someone who I don't recognize impersonates Julian Eltinge playing Mae West..... then you're on the verge of something so strange that they might have invented screwball comedy a year before Howard Hawks birthed it in TWENTIETH CENTURY.... but someone pulled back, said we had to be sure the audience understands the envelope switch.... and turned what might have been great into another decent time waster. James Dunn is good, Joan Bennet is very good -- another talented actress that was used and ignored by all the critics because she had the misfortune to have a talent for comedy -- and Herbert Mundin is good. But you walk out of the theater frustrated.
