Description

One's got a sophisticated, suave and debonair con act. The other's got…well, an act. Together, Steve Martin and Michael Caine are 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels', and they're absolutely ruining the Riviera in this "hilarious battle of wits and double-crosses" ('Boxoffice') that "couldn't be more delightful" ('The Wall Street Journal')! Martin is Freddy Benson, a small-time con mansleazing his way through Europe on whatever handouts he can scam. Caine is Lawrence Jamieson, an impeccably dressed and high-minded artiste who thinks Freddy is giving him – and all con men – a bad name. At first, Lawrence agrees to help Freddy spruce up his talents and his wardrobe. But when it becomes apparent that the Riviera isn't big enough for the both of them, they make a winner-take-all wager over the fortunes of a naïve American soap heiress (Glenne Headly): The first one to "clean her out" can make the other clear out – and keep the Riviera and its unsuspecting tourists to himself!
