The Impostors

The Impostors is a 1998 American farce motion picture directed, written and produced by Stanley Tucci, starring Oliver Platt, Tucci, Alfred Molina, Tony Shalhoub, Steve Buscemi, and Billy Connolly. The film, in which Oliver Platt and Stanley Tucci play a Laurel and Hardy-like odd couple of out-of work actors, is set in the depression-era 1930s; indeed, the retro style of the film is a recreation of 1930s screwball comedy. The opening silent sequence harks back to the golden days of silent film. The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.

Maurice:
[has just finished eating a pastry; part of a scheme to get free pastries] I hate them.

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Oh, I'm sorry; to each his own. There's another bakery shop down the block whose wares might be more to your liking. Thank you for coming in. [to Arthur] May I help you, sir?

Arthur:
Yes, would you excuse me a moment? I'm sorry, [to Maurice] I couldn't help but overhear, excuse me, sir, um, but may I say that your rudeness to this hard-working gentleman is uncalled for.

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Please, sir

Maurice:
I beg your pardon.

Arthur:
No, I beg yours, sir. I happen to know that this gentleman [refers to the baker] is one of the finest pastry chefs on the Eastern seaboard.

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Well, thank you.

Arthur:
You're welcome.

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Do I know you?

Arthur:
Of course you do.

Maurice:
What's your point?

Arthur:
My point is, sir, that you would not know a good creampuff if it jumped up and licked you on the ass.

Maurice:
Well...

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Sir, it's just a difference in taste.

Arthur:
No, no. this man is clearly an imbecile.

Maurice:
Ah, an insult! [quietly to Arthur] I'm in-I'm insulted?

Arthur:
Yes.

Maurice:
I'm insulted! Well, I am!

Arthur:
Oh, well good-good-good-good! Well, I'm glad you are! But I'm sure you're not as insulted as this gentleman!

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Oh, I'm not insulted.

Arthur:
Oh, yes you are! The man works all day like a mule to support his miserable family.

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
Well, here now, my family isn't miserable. We're all quite happy!

Arthur:
No, you're not! You're miserable and pathetic, look at you! [ignoring his protest] All day, working like a lackey from rise to set sweating in the eye of Phoebus!

Baker in Kramer's Pastries:
I love my work!

Arthur:
No, you don't!
