Will Plunkett and Captain James Macleane, two men from different ends of the social spectrum in 18th-century England, enter a gentlemen's agreement: They decide to rid the aristocrats of their belongings. With Plunkett's criminal know-how and Macleane's social connections, they team up to be soon known as "The Gentlemen Highwaymen". But when one day these gentlemen hold up Lord Chief Justice Gibson's coach, Macleane instantly falls in love with his beautiful and cunning niece, Lady Rebecca Gibson. Unfortunately, Thief Taker General Chance, who also is quite fond of Rebecca, is getting closer and closer to getting both: The Gentlemen Highwaymen and Rebecca, who, needless to say, don't want to get any closer to him. But Plunkett still has a thing to sort out with Chance, and his impulsiveness gets all of them in a little trouble. Written by

1-4 days after having sex with Lady D'Arcy, Macleane complains of having "the pox" (syphilis) and that his genitals are a "disaster area". This is impossible - syphilis symptoms take at least a week to develop and are initially (for the first few weeks) painless and very minor. However, given that medical science and knowledge were fairly rudimentary in the 18th century, it could be that Macleane had picked up a different STD and was getting it confused with syphilis. But even then, STDs do not generally show noticeable symptoms within such a short time of exposure. See more »

It's an awesome 18th century action-packed adventure!
Wow! I picked this off the rental shelf because I loved Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller in 'Trainspotting.' This is a phenomenal movie; it has action, romance, suspense, intrigue and wit. When I wasn't laughing, I was at the edge of my seat. This is definitely a film I would recommend to people with an appreciation for intelligent dialogue and a fresh perspective of the 18th century. This film has everything to keep ME happy!
