The Fortune
Set amidst the Roaring Twenties, handsome Nicky (Warren Beatty) and sly Oscar (Jack Nicholson) play two dopey con-men who concoct an elaborate scheme to steal the fortune of Freddie (Stockard Channing), an air-head heiress in this stylish musical comedy from filmmaker Mike Nichols. When the whole plan becomes hopelessly unraveled, the two decide they must murder her. Unfortunately and fortunately for them, she is not so easily dispatched.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mike Nichols' period farce is an artistic and commercial misfire--despite the presence of two major stars, Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The uneven farce is enjoyable only in spurts."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Fascinating mess. Far better than its reputation suggests."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
