‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ Movie Summary

In Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, the wealthy British swindler, Lawrence Jamieson, lives in Beaumont-sur-Mer on the French Riviera. He’s made most of his money conning wealthy women out of money. With the help of the local Police Inspector, Andre, and a dark lord/butler named Arthur, he pretends to be a deposed Prince in need of financing for a secret war to liberate his people. One day, the loud American, Freddy Benson, comes to town Beaumont-sur-Mer to also con unsuspecting wealthy women out of money, and he threatens to scare them all out of town. Not only does Freddy’s brashness perturb Lawrence, but he also believes Freddy is the Jackal; a master con man making waves throughout Europe.

However, Freddy is actually a small-time con man; happily scamming a few hundred dollars here and there where Lawrence brings in thousands of dollars per scam. Soon, Freddy convinces Lawrence to teach him his tricks, but eventually, Freddy balks at his meager earnings from the endeavor. Things come to a head when the two come up with a bet where the loser leaves town forever. The men choose a bumbling American “soap Queen” named Janet Colgate, who has just arrived in town, as their mark. The first fella to get fifty thousand dollars out of her wins. However, as the bet goes on, our hapless criminals find out that they are in for much more than they bargained for. Read the full summary and listen to the film review.
