Nice Bits

Two men who cheat rich women for a living are somehow made hilarious by two top comedy actors. They play totally opposite characters, which creates much of the comedy.

Steve Martin plays his usual over the top vulgar American with great effect, while Michael Caine’s polite genteel Englishman offers a lovely contrast, playing it straight. Watching their varied approaches to finding and conning women is just delightful!

But don’t feel sorry for the women, as they’re not all quite as helpless as they seem.

Nasty Bits

Nothing to report.
