AUDITIONSScoundrels

Two shameless con men and a hapless American heiress are locked in an uproarious dance of disguise, deception, and deceit against the luxurious backdrop of the French Riviera. With $50,000 and territorial rights going to the winner, all bets are off as masochistic German doctors are impersonated, live goldfish are eaten, and “love sneaks in” unwittingly on even the cleverest of cons. But who ends up conning whom?
