Synopsis

Glamorous Josephine Chesterfield (Anne Hathaway) lives in a gorgeous mansion in Beaumont-sur-Mer. She earns her money by defrauding gullible, wealthy men she meets in high-end casinos.

While traveling on a train, she spots Penny Rust (Rebel Wilson), an Australian woman who also runs scams on men. Their methods may be different, but they're both extremely talented at what they do. At first, Josephine decides to take Penny under her wings and train her. However, that doesn't work for long. Beaumont-sur-Mer is only big enough for one con woman.

They decide to make a wager. The first woman to swindle $500,000 from naïve tech billionaire (Alex Sharp) will win the turf war.

  • 1 star "I watched this and could not believe how bad it was. How this is the work of professional film makers. Let's start by remaking (badly) a 30 + year old movie. Now let's cast a woman who is more than 100lbs overweight. Now let's remove all entertainment value from the movie. I walked out before the end, yeah it is that bad, Wow"

  • 1 star "My Granddaughter took me to this as a girls night out. I was shocked to see how obese Rebel Wilson is. How we have come from beautiful Actresses like Lynda Carter and Olivia Newton John to this ? The film turned out to be a remake of a Steve Martin movie from the 1980's that I have in my Dvd Library. If I knew this ahead of time I never would have gone to see this Stinker, it was just not funny."
