In this remake of 1988's "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," 2 con-women hustle in a small French Riviera town - one for small amounts from average men, and one for higher amounts wealthier men. They bet on what looks like an easy target. Winner gets $500K from him, and the loser leaves town forever.Written by
Anne Hathaway was initially resistant to doing the role with a posh British accent but director Chris Addison persuaded her that it was essential to the character. See more »
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 »
Several years ago, Michael Caine suggested that rather than remaking hit movies, the studios rewrite and produce remakes of bad movies to make them better. In the last 6 months Ann Hathaway has appeared in two of the biggest flops (Oceans 8 and The Hustle) of the year. Maybe it's time to stop acting in remakes and start doing originals. Would have rated 0 if able.
