DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS is a comedy, from 1988, in which a pair of rival con men make a wager on who will be the first to swindle a young American heiress out of a large amount of money.

Language

There is mild bad language ('shit', 'arse', 'arsehole').

Sex

There are mild sex references, including comments about "the first one to get her into bed" and "Don't you ever have a thought above the waist?" and "And then they made love". In one scene, a woman starts to undo her blouse but there is no breast nudity.

As part of a deception one of the con men pretends to be unable to use his legs. In one scene he asks to go to the bathroom but appears to be urinating under the table where he is sitting.
