In this female-centric remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, two women from different walks of life (Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson) compete to con a young tech billionaire (award-winning Broadway star Alex Sharp) in the south of France. Hathaway plays a female version of the Michael Caine role as the seemingly focused and organized con artist, while Wilson takes on a female version of the Steve Martin role as the crazy wild card.

I have not laughed out loud this much in a theater in a long time. I really enjoyed this movie.
Didn’t laugh once. See ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ instead. Same movie but that one is funny.
Though the 55 year-old plot's bones are sturdy and its new performers gifted, moviegoers hoping for a mercilessly funny post-Weinstein revenge fantasy (its poster declares: They're giving dirty rotten men a run for their money) will walk away feeling conned.
The new film is ripe for big laughs with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as, respectively, the snobby British bombshell with sticky fingers and the rough-around-the-edges though equally cunning con artist, but neither actress is given rich enough material to bring the film’s most interesting ideas to the finish line.
A watchable, unnecessary re-do that works hard but lacks the charm to really zing.
