Storyline

Following the theft of a highly-secured piece of artwork, an agent convinces her insurance agency employers to allow her to wriggle into the company of an aging but active master thief. Connery's burglar takes her on suspiciously and demands rigorous training before their first job together--stealing a highly-valued mask from a chichi party. Their deepening attraction and distrust could tear apart their partnership but the promise of a bigger prize (some eight billion odd dollars) by Zeta-Jones keeps the game interesting. Only, who's playing with whom? Written by Lordship <lordship@juno.com>

Trivia

During Catherine Zeta-Jones' breakdown of the intensive security measures she and Sean Connery will encounter in the millenium heist, Rolf Saxon is continuously shown throughout the sequence as the director of the millenium compliance testing. He was introduced in a similar fashion as C.I.A. Analyst William Donloe when Tom Cruise conducts the breakdown of the C.I.A. break-in at Langley, VA in Mission: Impossible (1996). See more »

Goofs

At 11:00 PM on the night of the Millenium Heist, Gin says they will now gain one tenth of a second every minute until midnight to gain the extra ten seconds the heist requires. However, 60 minutes' worth of gains will only yield them six extra seconds. See more »

Can stealing be an art form? Convincing look.
13 November 2000 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of those that keeps the characters purpose twisting and turning. You have to second guess the ending twice. The vivacious Catherine Zeta-Jones plays a top notch insurance agent that specializes in art theft. She takes on the mission of catching a master thief(Sean Connery)by convincing him that she too is a supreme art thief.

Just enough action to keep your attention. Wonderful scenery and the more than just beautiful Zeta-Jones makes for advanced heartbeat. The age difference of the two stars fits the script like a glove and gives a fleeting glimpse of romance.

Camera work is intense. The big chase/escape scene is awesome.

Also appearing are: Ving Rhames, Maury Chaykin and Will Patton.
