Storyline

Richard and Kate are a divorced couple who have an amicable relationship. Richard who's about to retire learns that his company's assets have been frozen because it's under investigation and that includes the pension fund. When the owner goes out of the country, Richard decides to pursue him and Kate goes with him. When they learn the man doesn't care about the employees, they decide to get the money some other way; by stealing the diamond he gave his girlfriend. So they follow them and Kate gets close to the girlfriend. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

Probably unintentional, but the song that plays while Emma Thompson and her gang are tying up the four Texans, is "I Fought the Law" by The Clash. Thompson's mother is Phyllida Law. See more »

Goofs

Kate suggests stealing the Eye of the Rainbow since Kruger won't give the money back, but Richard objects that doesn't mean they become the Pink Panther. However in the film of the same name, the Pink Panther is the diamond, not the jewel thief. See more »

Banal, and a shocking waste of my time and money
18 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

We went to see this purely on the strength of the cast, Emma , Celia and Timothy can't make a poor film can they? Well unfortunately it really looks like they can. Clichéd script, production values that would have looked outdated in the 50's, a script that is barely worthy of the word, and direction that is predictable and hackneyed.

Emma tried hard, Timothy responded to the desperate pleas from the director to do some of your funny business, but it all fell flat as a pancake. Pierce really should be talked out of doing comedy, his acting talents are wearing very thin. You see.. my partner thinks that it is all part of a conspiracy to seduce the grey pound out of our pockets. She finds the whole "older people behaving badly, showing signs of having an active sexuality and saying f*** a lot" an unfortunate patronising new genre....Exotic Marigold hotel etc, and that dire Paris caper with the wonderful Lindsay Duncan in it.

But I think that is unjustifiably generous to a dire mess like this...the idea that it was deliberately aimed at any genre is backing conspiracy over cock-up with barely any real justification. Cock-up? Yes that is about it.
