For fans of the 'old' Steve Martin, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is an interesting case study in how an actor can evolve in ability, but devolve in likeability, over time.

There's little enough to keep you occupied as Caine and Martin go through their comic set pieces in workaday fashion while the film moves mechanically from one contrived situation to the next.

Martin and Caine scam women. Not for young kids.

The chemistry between Martin and Caine is fun, and Headly provides a resilient foil as a woman who looks like a pushover but somehow never seems to topple.

Caine and Martin are criminally cool together. Truly funny stuff.

A wonderfully crafted, absolutely charming remake of the 1964 film Bedtime Story.

A very funny and entertaining film that should be recommended as an example of something that is rather absent in Hollywood these days -- stylish and well-crafted comedy.
