VEEP//DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS AU >> “Boys, I stole over three million dollars last year. But I gotta tell you, your fifty thousand was the most fun I ever had.”
Summer on the French Riviera. Suave con artist Dan Egan, who poses as an aristocrat to seduce morally corrupt older women out of their life savings, clashes with arrogant young rival and petty thief Jonah Ryan, who believes in conning anyone just to get a free meal. After disastrously attempting to team up with Jonah, Dan proposes a bet: the first to seduce and swindle $50,000 out of naive American heiress Amy Brookheimer stays in Beaumont-sur-Mer, while the loser must leave town for good – but what they don’t know is that “Amy Brookheimer” is just the latest alias of legendary con artist The Jackal, and she’s out to take them for all that they have before they can take her.
Oh, Dan is a shit… He’s a massive and total shit. When you first meet him you think surely to God this man can’t be as big a shit as he seems, but he is. It’s like if there were a book with covers made of shit you’d think “That’s intriguing, I wonder what’s in this book that they saw fit to give it covers made of pure shit.” And then you open it and, shit.
