Trivia

There are at least two allusions to Brosnan's former role as James Bond. When Spall offers his gun, Brosnan momentarily holds it against his cheek in the iconic 007 pose. Later, when all four heroes are scaling a cliff, the score briefly becomes a faux John Barry action cue. See more »

When he throws the pillow at the cat, the pillow stays on top of the sofa, a second later, the pillows are organized again. See more »

Quotes

Kate: I think that liking them is much more important than loving them, actually. Love is easy to fall into. Liking is much harder. Think of your wedding as a driving test. You take it, you pass, and then you really start to learn how to drive. Or you crash.

This film was written in the 1960s several times; then again in the 1970s and even again in the 1980s for some old actors who needed to look funny and sexy still.

It's the perfect piece of dross that you'd see on a flight and stick with because your defenses are down. On land, and with plenty of oxygen to the brain, there is no excuse to suffer this series of worn out clichés and stale moves.

Brosnan is perfectly at ease in this soggy soufflé, Thompson less so; she seems a schoolteacher who is slightly ashamed at doing this. The other actors all hack their way through the formula of inferior scenes and dialog.

It's so utterly lazy that the creative team might have used their time better by dozing on the couch and watching old movies.
