Rating: 2.5/4 -- An amusing comedy whose strengths and weaknesses both stem from the broad treatment of the material. Full Review
TV Guide
Feb 2, 2009
The writers, Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning, have brightened up their 1964 script in collaboration with Dale Launer with some caustic new gags and a more effective ending; and Frank Oz's direction keeps the comedy zapping along at a fine pace. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- ...a deliberately-paced yet consistently entertaining comedy that benefits substantially from Caine and Martin's superb work... Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Dec 12, 2018
There's little enough to keep you occupied as Caine and Martin go through their comic set pieces in workaday fashion while the film moves mechanically from one contrived situation to the next. Full Review

A wonderfully crafted, absolutely charming remake of the 1964 film Bedtime Story. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Martin and Caine scam women. Not for young kids. Full Review

Their comic methods are different, but from their first unequal encounter until the very last in a series of twist endings, Mr. Caine and Mr. Martin work together with an exuberant ease that's a joy to watch.

Product Description:

Brash, small-time con man (Steve Martin) meets fake prince in exile (Michael Caine) in this outrageous comedy of backstabbing, elaborate lies, and dirty tricks as the two men battle for the prime fleecing territory of a European resort. A wager between the two over duping an American heiress out of her money sends the stakes higher, as the loser must leave town. However, a wily swindler also searching for good territory might have other plans for the two men.

Plot Synopsis:

Master comedy director Frank Oz (BOWFINGER, IN & OUT) sets two con men against each other in a struggle for a French seaside town, the perfect territory for duping gullible and wealthy vacationers. Smooth and complacent swindler Lawrence Jamieson (Michael Caine) is infuriated when clumsy but effective con man Freddy Benson (Steve Martin) encroaches on his hunting grounds. When Benson proves persistent, Jamieson makes him a bet over who will be the first to get $50,000 out of a visiting American heiress, with the loser leaving town.
Trademark physical comedy from Martin and Caine's smarmy and perfectly timed lines fuel the hilarious competition and decisive showdown--which ends as neither man expects.
