"...There's something appealing about the interplay between the stars..."
In their fourth outing as a team, Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder star as a chronic liar and a con man whose deceptive ways get them into a very sticky situation involving a missing millionaire, his beautiful wife, a fearsome estate executive, and a serious case of mistaken identity. As the lies and scams fly around, pile up, and double back over one another, the two professional liars realize that they don't quite know how to handle a situation when they aren't the ones telling the lies!
Story of a con-artist forced to do community service with a chronic liar.
