QUICK TAKE:
Adventure: A retelling of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," only this time it's two female con artists looking to bilk rich men on the French Riviera.
PLOT:
Josephine Chesterfield (ANNE HATHAWAY) is a high-class con artist who has long specialized in bilking rich men. She has mastered multiple accents, languages, and dialects; knows fine art, wine, and culture; and has amassed a multimillion-dollar fortune all while living in a swank estate home on the French Riviera. Life is good, and she has the local police inspector, Brigitte (INGRID OLIVER), on her payroll and frequently incorporates her loyal butler, Albert (NICHOLAS WOODESON), in her machinations.

But their upscale grifting is threatened with the arrival of a crass, coarse con artist from America named Penny (REBEL WILSON). Penny has been strictly small time in the U.S., devising various Internet scams that take unsuspecting men for a few hundred dollars at a time. She yearns for a big score, but Josephine is afraid her boorish ways will "scare away the game."

A rivalry develops and ultimately the two man-hating women make a bet involving a twenty-something tech billionaire named Thomas Westerburg (ALEX SHARP). The first one to relieve Thomas of $500,000 gets to stay in the seaside Mediterranean town that's home to playboys and moguls alike. Penny poses as a blind woman in need of a legendary doctor's expensive treatment for her condition. Josephine heads her off by posing as the doctor, whose fee is $500,000 to treat "poor Penny."

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens may be attracted to its two lead stars and broad comedy.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For crude sexual content and language (on appeal from the original R rating).

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
