  • This disappointing comedy, which seems to move at a snail's pace, is almost saved by the gorgeous scenery and settings, crisply photographed. Locations include the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu-sur-Mer, the harbor at Juan-les-Pins, and other lovely spots on the Cote d'Azur. [14 Dec 1988, p.E1] show more

  • Scoundrels isn't rock-bottom. That a more sturdy vehicle couldn't be found for such stellar leads, though, is a dirty rotten shame. [14 Dec 1988, p. 4D] show more

  • I never saw the original, but the sprightly remake couldn't be more delightful. As the ultra-suave Lawrence Jamison, Mr. Caine wears his hair and mustache Niven-like -- slicked down but never greasy. He manages to draw more laughs by merely reacting than most comics can pull out of a punchline. With his calculated coarseness, Mr. Martin is a perfect foil. Behind the scenes is former Muppet Man Frank Oz. He pulls the strings so deftly he never disturbs the froth. [15 Dec 1988, p.1] show more

    This film is like \"Pygmalion\",in that Caine(Jaws The Revenge) teaches Martin(All Of Me) how to be a clever thief. They meet up with a smooth lady who suddenly catches on to their game.Martin is so funny,in playing different characters.I enjoy the torture Caine puts Martin through,and love how a sweet lady manages to hoodwink them.The men find a partner who helps them go after the island tourists.Marvellous and Wonderful !
