Goofs

In the beginning of the film, Josephine sets up a scam where she switches a fake bracelet for the one her mark is trying to sell her. This means they not only had to know which piece of jewelry he would try to sell that night, but also had to have access to it in order to recreate it well enough for 'only an expert' to know it was a fake (or his wife).

Major disappointment
14 May 2019 | by vickivlasicSee all my reviews

Maybe I expected too much. A great cast in Rebel Wilson and Ann Hathaway could not make up for a lack of creativity in the writing. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a classic but flipping the gender without updating the storyline resulted in a flop for this film.
