Storyline

Richard (Pierce Brosnan) and Kate (Dame Emma Thompson) 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

Lighthearted fun
28 April 2014 | by cinematic_aficionadoSee all my reviews

A divorced couple lose everything and so they plan a robbery in order to recover what is rightfully theirs.

This is a light-hearted comedy through and through, the type we are getting more and more used to in seeing the former Mr Bond. One could go on about the insufficient storyline as well as the sheer impossibility of the break-in executed by utter amateurs.

Whilst I stand by the above but to judge it on that basis would be a miss and by treating it as a fun/cheerie comedy about a former couple who have to put up with another in order to salvage their pension and embark on an adventure it will suffice for a somewhat delightful time on the big screen.
