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

Mr. Crown incorrectly quotes the Leonard Cohen song 'The Stranger Song' - he says "It's sad to see another tired man lay down his hand and quit the holy game of poker" when the actual words are "You hate to watch another tired man lay down his hand like he was giving up the holy game of poker". It is well within the realms of possibility that the character was just paraphrasing the song, he is established as an art expert not a musical expert. See more »
For a few minutes , 120 or so you will feel like you are living the life of the protagonist.
A smile will be on your face throughout the movie. An anticipation will build on and you will enjoy a climax every 15 minutes or so.
This movie is one of its kind, not to mention Pierce Brosnan who looks tailor made for this role.
Every few years a movie comes that you remember throughout your life, sometimes it may appeal to one group and detract another, but the people to whom it appeals, it touches their heart and they are deeply influenced by it. It is one of those movies
After Clint Eastwood it was Pierce Brosnan who could actually play a real, relaxed , laid back, mature man in Hollywood.
