They're a perfect team - If they don't kill each other first!
20 January 1999 | by RimseySee all my reviews

Peter Bowles and Bryan Murray star in this lighthearted look at then modern day "Con" game! Like Arthur Dayley before them - sometime the fickle winds of fate blow their way - sometimes they don't.
