Opposite view: I Liked It
30 July 2006 | by parkerr86302See all my reviews

I seem to be only the second person to post on this film. It aired a few times on Phoenix television in the 1980s, and I found it to be quite entertaining. It is a rip-off of THE STING, to be sure, and if there is one problem, it is that the depicted scams are so complex it may take more than one viewing to completely decipher the plot (and yes, I took the time to do just that). Bud Spencer's fans have a head start on this film, but you don't have to be a fan to get into it. Charlston isn't a classic, but it is a pleasant way to kill 90 minutes, if you can find it. It seems to have done a vanishing act in America in recent years, which is too bad. A good film; a nice little film.
