"I've got culture coming out of my ass."
Beaumont sur Mer is a tranquil little town along the French Mediterranean coast where Michael Caine's con man Lawrence preys on the kindness of women to afford himself quite the elaborate lifestyle. That is until small-time grifter Freddie (Steve Martin) rolls through the place and forces Lawrence to share the secrets of his high-class ways. What follows is an out-con the con back and forth that's both intelligent and absolutely idiotic at the same time.
This is vintage Steve Martin at his best, swinging from one-liners to pratfalls at the drop of a hat (ZING!) and Michael Caine is like a white British Will Smith for me. I'd watch this man act in pretty much anything because he goes down like a warm comforting glass of milk before bedtime, and his comedic talents have gone severely underappreciated over the years. But we can't just exhibit this magnificent 35mm print, NO! We must partake in absolute decadence and that's where Alamo Beverage Director Bill Norris comes in. He will be designing custom cocktails for the show themed with the movie. Try one and have a good time, or bask in the opulent glory of them all and make a friend drive you home. SERIOUSLY, trust Bill Norris, this is a man who has mixed things I hate into concoctions I still dream of. (Greg MacLennan)
