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 final conversation between Detective McCann and Banning in which he essentially excuses her from the investigation so she can chase down Thomas Crown was not in the original script, but added about halfway through filming. See more »

I usually hate remakes, but this is the exception that proves the rule.
Pierce Brosnan is so much more classy that Steve McQueen. He is utterly convincing as a rich playboy and an entrepreneur. While Faye Dunaway did a marvelous job in the original and I have no criticism of her performance, I am enchanted with the performance of Rene Russo.
Brosnan and Russo were a pair that were perfectly matched. The soundtrack was fantastic, even including "The Windmills of Your Mind" from the original. Adding Dunaway as a Psychiatrist was a masterful touch.
This is much more of a caper film as you actually saw some beautiful work her. The "other woman" was beefed up and really added to the plot. The ending was much more satisfying, and, unlike the previous version which had to be rated "R" because the bad guy won, this actually earned the rating with some magnificent scenes.
