One of my favorite movies. Thanks for reminding me.
Underrated and somewhat unknown movie. The ending is a little hokey but Steve Martin always plays a good con man. See also: The Spanish Prisoner.
Have you seen the Oscar-winning film **Elmer Gantry**? If not, check it out.
Was not expecting Liam Neeson
Currently loving The Righteous Gemstones on HBO. Vulgar but along the same topic.
Such a great movie. “Are you ready for a miracle?” Great music. Debra Winger is one of my favorite actresses from growing up in the 80s. Steve Martin giving a really outstanding performance.
The southern bible belt sounds… bad.
Not exactly the best movie of all times but I took away so much from it.
This is the set up for the clip below: Steve Martin is a small time crook/travelling pastor. He and his circus came to a small town deep in drought and desperately looking for a miracle in rain. Steve Martin took advantage of the situation and collected tons of donations from those who really can’t afford to give. The Sheriff (Liam Neeson) looked right through that and exposed him during Steve Martin’s service:
The clip cut too short. Immediately following the clip a guy stood up and ask “What about the rain?”. Steve did some more his verbal magic and ended the scene with “You asked me when it is going to rain. I asked you when it is going to stop” and dance right out of the conundrum.
That’s the point I understood where the unique blend of American Southern politicians come from.
You know, I haven’t seen this movie since not too long after it came out, but I remember enjoying it.
I think Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels is my favorite Steve Martin film. Saw him perform banjo too, highly recommend
