I really like Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway so couldnt wait to see this film.

It is about two female con artists working independently on their own cons trying to swindle people in the same town.

They both have different tactics they use in order to con men with.  One uses their looks and charm, the other by playing on their sympathies and manipulating them.

They begin stepping on eachother's toes as they try to work on the same patch.  At first Anne Hathaway's character tries to rid herself of Rebel Wilson's character by pretending that the police have rumbled her but she works out its just a cleverly constructed plan.

They end up working together in order to con a young man out of his money, a wager they work on to see which of them can get the money first.

This funny as expected is funny and witty and I really enjoyed it.  Rebel plays Anne's mental sister Hortence during the ring con and I found the set up hilarious.  I think they worked very well together although I was a bit confused with Anne Hathaway's British accent.  Maybe it was meant to sound like that as Anne may have been pretending she was British as the character.  I am not sure.

Anyway the con artists managed to get themselves conned by another con artist!

I won't spoil the ending but I will highly recommend this film as it was funny entertaining and the characters were great.

Great line in the film 'release the peasants!' 

I give his film 9 out of 10 as there are many parts that made me laugh and I watched it again.  I think it is one of those films you want to watch again.  

The two actresses together were a great comedy combination and so cleverly done and thought out.
