Scenes from the The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) appear on the TV in the background when Frank and Roz are in the borrowed mansion. Yaphet Kotto, who plays FBI agent O'Mally in this movie, also appeared in The Thomas Crown Affair; and Denis Leary appeared in the remake, The Thomas Crown Affair (1999). See more »

Funny movie, but more appealing to Denis Leary fans
I am a big fan of Denis Leary, and I thought this was a damn funny movie. The plot is cut-and-dry (the little plot that exists), but it works out nicely as a comedy, mostly due to Leary's funny dialogue and humorous arguments between him and Bullock. I think Bullock was miscast, though. She did an OK job, but her accent drifted many times. If you like Leary, you'll probably have a great time. I especially loved the scene where Leary was going fishing and he shoots one of the fish. Then he cooks it up, serves it up to Bullock and she spits out a bullet. That was classic. But for non-Leary fans...you might not enjoy it as much. I don't consider him an acquired taste, but his foul-mouthed banter doesn't appeal to everyone.
