Based on the 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels opens on the cool, cosmopolitan Lawrence Jameson and the more humble Freddy Benson, both living on the French Riviera. Little known to the many wealthy tourists, they are conmen who make their living swindling money out of rich women. After an unsuccessful attempt at being partners, the two decide that the Riviera is not big enough for the both of them, beginning a competition to see who can elicit $50,000 from a visiting heiress, with the loser forced to leave.
Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes, with an intermission.
