In this remake of 1988's "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," 2 con-women hustle in a small French Riviera town - one for small amounts from average men, and one for higher amounts wealthier men. They bet on what looks like an easy target. Winner gets $500K from him, and the loser leaves town forever.Written by

Several years ago, Michael Caine suggested that rather than remaking hit movies, the studios rewrite and produce remakes of bad movies to make them better.

Would have rated 0 if able.
