Self-made billionaire Thomas Crown is bored of being able to buy everything he desires. Being irresistible to women, he also does not feel any challenge in that area. But there are a few things even he can't get, therefore Thomas Crown has a seldom hobby: He steals priceless masterpieces of Art. After the theft of a famous painting from Claude Monet, the only person suspecting Thomas Crown is Catherine Banning. Her job is to get the picture back, no matter how she accomplishes her mission. Unfortunately, Catherine gets involved too deeply with Thomas to keep a professional distance to the case. Fortunately, Thomas seems to fall for her, too. Written by

The Claude Monet paintings used in the film, "San Giorgio Maggiore at dusk" and "Wheatstacks", are, of course, reproductions and were supplied by "Troubetzkoy Paintings" in New York, USA. What's more, the originals are not owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. "San Giorgio Maggiore at dusk" is owned by the Bridgestone Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan and is currently (2003) on display in the National Museum and Art Gallery, Cardiff, Wales. "Wheatstacks" is at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The painting Crown admires and calls "his haystacks" is Vincent van Gogh's "Noon: Rest From Work (After Millet)", the original of which is in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France. See more »
Just before Crown steals the painting, he tells the guard (looking at his watch) that it's quarter to five. But when Catherine and Michael are reviewing the security tape, the tape notes "the time of the robbery" as 5:54. See more »

It was wonderful - much better than the "original" The characters were more interesting, the plot more interesting!
The entire cast gives marvellous performances, Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan are wonderful, sexy, intelligent and never boring!
I am tired of hearing about Rene's age being a factor, there are sexy talented women of all ages! Her performance is what thrilled me - she gives a multifaceted performance. And its interesting that most of the critical people of her on this site are male. I guess they can't handle a strong- yet vulnerable, intelligent woman.
Kudos to Pierce Brosnan for selecting a woman lead who is not only his contemporary but equal in intelligence and moxy!!
