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 idea of unusual heat in the museum rendering thermal cameras useless came from director John McTiernan's earlier movie Predator (1987). In that movie, McTiernan's actual thermal cameras began to fail when the jungle temperature broke 90 degrees Fahrenheit. See more »
When Banning has taken Crown's keys, and her people are making duplicates, a close-up is shown on the machine cutting the duplicate key. They are gliding the head across the grooves to cut the slug into the same shape. This is how many keys are duplicated, but not the Medeco high-security model that is shown in the movie. The Medecos are cut one groove at a time, because each groove can be angled in one of three positions. See more »

For a few minutes , 120 or so you will feel like you are living the life of the protagonist.
A smile will be on your face throughout the movie. An anticipation will build on and you will enjoy a climax every 15 minutes or so.
This movie is one of its kind, not to mention Pierce Brosnan who looks tailor made for this role.
Every few years a movie comes that you remember throughout your life, sometimes it may appeal to one group and detract another, but the people to whom it appeals, it touches their heart and they are deeply influenced by it. It is one of those movies
After Clint Eastwood it was Pierce Brosnan who could actually play a real, relaxed , laid back, mature man in Hollywood.
