Cast: Rebel Wilson, Anne Hathaway, Alex Sharp


Glamorous Josephine Chesterfield (Anne Hathaway) lives in a gorgeous mansion in Beaumont-sur-Mer. She earns her money by defrauding gullible, wealthy men she meets in high-end casinos.

While traveling on a train, she spots Penny Rust (Rebel Wilson), an Australian woman who also runs scams on men. Their methods may be different, but they're both extremely talented at what they do. At first, Josephine decides to take Penny under her wing and train her. However, that doesn't work for long. Beaumont-sur-Mer is only big enough for one con woman.

They decide to make a wager. The first woman to swindle $500,000 from naïve tech billionaire (Alex Sharp) will win the turf war.

  • 3 stars "It was okay. Few laughs and I don't make movies. I probably won't ever either. On that merit, it's better than I could do"
  • 5 stars "Rebel Wilson is amazing. For those of you discussing her weight, Look at yourself in a mirror. It's not for you to discuss. She's a great hilarious actress regardless of the fact that shes "100 lbs" over weight (which is an extreme over exaggeration)."
  • 1 star "I watched this and could not believe how bad it was. How this is the work of professional film makers. Let's start by remaking (badly) a 30 + year old movie. Now let's cast a woman who is more than 100lbs overweight. Now let's remove all entertainment value from the movie. I walked out before the end, yeah it is that bad, Wow"
