Still holds up after all these years. Great fun, acting, story, direction and production design.

A delightful work. The plot quietly ties together to produce a feeling of true audience satisfaction by the end.

What a film…ever wanted to get revenge on someone without them knowing? Imagine having a group of people eager to help you do it - all of them professional con artists. I hope to be watching this till I'm very old.
