Critic Reviews for The Flim-Flam Man

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

O relacionamento entre os personagens de Sarrazin e Scott é uma boa base para o filme, mas este se enfraquece com a subtrama romântica envolvendo Sue Lyon e desmorona de vez em seu terceiro ato que busca o drama.

Pleasant, off-beat comedy drama.

In keeping with their shifty con tricks, the characters stay on the move
