Marvelous
19 September 1999 | by oleh_kSee all my reviews

It is not The Sting, it is in a way better, less elaborated and more amusing. Two con artists (Celentano and Quinn) bluff each other and anybody who happens to come across out of money and out of jail. Unfortunately DVD is missing a few amusing peaces. Still if you are a fan of easy cute fun, see it. Comedies age, this one didn't.

8/10
