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 catamaran that Thomas Crown is seen racing in Long Island Sound, is a D-Type Catamaran. The earliest Class D catamarans were designed and built by individual amateur designers as early as 1963. Richard Karcher of Watchung, New Jersey, built either USD#1 or #2 at the time. His "D" boats were sailed on Barnegat Bay, New Jersey for several years on an experimental basis. Richard also designed and manufactured several other types limited production catamarans at the time, one of which was considered as the official Olympic Class Catamaran, and participated in the trial in England. Due to the vast amount of power that this design represented, no "production" versions were ever produced, and interest and research into this Class waned. Many years later in the 1980s, interest in this extremely fast and highly unstable yacht design was revived by California-based aeronautical engineers, who tried to break inshore multi-hull speed records. Today, there are only a handful of them left in the world. See more »

One of those movies you just got to watch, again and again
I caught it on HBO and realized what an entertaining movie this is and regretted not watching it on the big screen.
Pierce and Rene owned the movie and their superb acting holds the story together. It is not about the heist nor the painting, though the soundtrack was excellent. It's about love between 2 person who refused to believe that they are capable of being loved.
Never a fan of Pierce but this movie certainly cemented his status as an actor. None of his James Bond movie came close to delivering such a superb performance. You can always count on Rene to deliver her best in any movie.
You can say I am inlove with this movie and yes you are right indeed. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys watching movie for what it is and not trying to show off your intelligence by disecting the movie.
Simply, one of the best!
