The casino setting for Josephine's first con is La Casino Beaumont (per the table at which her mark is seen playing). She is also "arrested" by Beaumont Sur Mer police. Then, she is seen on the train with Penny, both en route to Beaumont Sur Mer. Although a fictional setting, BSM is not portrayed as a large city where trains would be needed to access other parts of town. See more »

User Reviews

Only just passable
9 May 2019 | by KathleenK22See all my reviews

It lacked oomph. We need so much now when the movies are of such high quality. The acting was not the issue rather the script they had to work with. There were only a couple of belly laughs, and others that were funny but not hilarious. The setting was fine as well. Some nice views were on show. With comedies they have the opportunity to be ridiculous and far fetched with some superb lines thrown in for effect and to give good actors a chance to shine. A few twists and turns that you cannot see coming also helps. The actors were let down I think. The storyline needed to be more complex. The very best comedies are multi layered and clever. This one lacked all that unfortunately. There was little tugging of the heart strings as well. That can be omitted for a comedy but it helps as well. In depth characterisation was not there either. I did not connect much to any of them. There were a few surprises but I had guessed them or saw them coming. Maybe keep it for a TV movie later on. It is not in the realm of the fine comedies!
