Storyline

Following the theft of a highly-secured piece of artwork, an agent convinces her insurance agency employers to allow her to wriggle into the company of an aging but active master thief. Connery's burglar takes her on suspiciously and demands rigorous training before their first job together, stealing a highly-valued mask from a chichi party. Their deepening attraction and distrust could tear apart their partnership, but the promise of a bigger prize (some eight billion odd dollars) by Zeta-Jones keeps the game interesting. Only, who's playing with whom? Written by Lordship <lordship@juno.com>

Trivia

This movie came in $2 million below its budget. Co-producer Rhonda Tollefson credits this to producer Sir Sean Connery's thrifty Scottish ways. Connery drove his own car instead of hiring a driver, and flew on commercial planes instead of using private ones so that all of the money would show up on-screen. See more »

Goofs

When Gin waits for Mac at Pudu Station at 6:30 AM it should be still dark (or at least dawn) outside. Malaysia, being in the southern hemisphere, actually has longer days around the New Years' celebration due to the fact that it would be summer there while winter in the US. Given that, it's perfectly reasonable that it could be daylight by 6:30 am. See more »

Mac: This is it? Whatever happened to money? I mean where is the good old-fashioned loot?

Alternate Versions

The British Board of Film Classification state that "substitutions" were made before a 12 certificate could be awarded. The edits were to change the line "Sit the fuck down" to "Sit your butt down". The DVD subtitles contain the original line, and the Australian DVD uses the same cut master. The cuts were waived for the 2007 DVD release. See more »

Can stealing be an art form? Convincing look.
13 November 2000 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

This movie is one of those that keeps the characters purpose twisting and turning. You have to second guess the ending twice. The vivacious Catherine Zeta-Jones plays a top notch insurance agent that specializes in art theft. She takes on the mission of catching a master thief(Sean Connery)by convincing him that she too is a supreme art thief.

Just enough action to keep your attention. Wonderful scenery and the more than just beautiful Zeta-Jones makes for advanced heartbeat. The age difference of the two stars fits the script like a glove and gives a fleeting glimpse of romance.

Camera work is intense. The big chase/escape scene is awesome.

Also appearing are: Ving Rhames, Maury Chaykin and Will Patton.
